Yeah, I hear you. Really wish I could have done things the easier way. When I did this swap for my dad years ago it was a 99 Mountaineer into a 2000 Ranger. The hardest part was putting engine and transmission in at the same time without removing the radiator support. Drilled one hole in the motor mount while it was in the truck and spliced like 5 wires. Had to get a dealership to reflash the pcm because we didn’t get the pats module and keys, which most dealerships didn’t want to touch, but now I have Forscan on my laptop so that isn’t an issue, I can make PATs accept keys.
