  1. 1996 Ranger 2.3l Blown Engine... Good Option?

    I just bought a 1996 Ford Ranger 4x4 with a blown 2.3l engine and a 5spd transmission. In my hunt for an engine I've found a guy that has a 1998 Ranger with the 2.5l and a 5spd for sale for $350.

    Hello, When I shift into 4x4 High the little "4x4" light on the dash board will not come on. This happens when I shift into 4x4 Low also, but the "Low Range" light comes on.
