I read back on here for such a swap but do not see one I can reference to, so, would like to see what's out there. The 4.0 in my 1991 Ranger,, I'm pretty sure,, is going to need some serious help. I have access to a low milage 4.0 from a 1996 Explorer and would like to know if this engine swap can be done without a lot of EEC issues??? THANKS and I appreciate any help.
