I thought I had a 4.0 truck bought for a swap but it fell through. The 3.0 in my truck was bad when I bought it and I have been looking for another 3.0. Every salvage yard I call wants to know the year. they say they don't have any 99-04 3.0 engines. why couldn't I swap an older one or a newer one in? I know I would have to change some stuff over but that isn't a big deal. I found a 93 3.0 truck with 101k on it and it has the same color bed as my truck even

My credo
One shot one Kill
for one the engines may be the same in theroy or u would at least think they would be, but in 93 it may have been a disturbutor, and in the later year it may have been coils or coil plugs, things like cam position sensor may not have been on that engine in 93, things like that i know its hard to find a 3.0 or 2.5, im looking for a 2.5 or 2.3 and i cant find 1 close to my year at any of the junk yards by me, so im gona attempt to do a 3.0 which share the same engine mounts and trans mission as the 2.5
