Just bought a 1997 4.0 ranger, while fixing an exhaust leak I found that both converters are leaking/have holes. I have a parts truck that is a 1995 2.3 with good converter on it, my question is can I use that converter on the 4.0 or are they different any help or advice would be awesome.

That 2.3 should only have one large converter. The 4.0 has 2 at least small converters immediately after the manifolds. Maybe another large one down stream. My 04 had 3. What do you plan do do with one converter to replace 2 with?

Your better off replacing them new with the proper ones wiggle the muffeler if it has a bunch of crap in it replace it also. Your engine will run alot better with a good exhaust system. A good muffeler shop will only replace what needs to be replaced its alot cheaper if you have the parts for them to put in and it gets done right.
