Got an '02 F150 with a seized up 4.6 for $800. 120,000MI on the truck, no rust or nothing.... Figured I couldn't go wrong.

Going to pick a motor up on Monday for $850, when its all said and done hopefully I wont be more than $2000 deep into it.



A little damage on the bedside, still not sure if i'll get it fixed yet, and I have a new tailgate coming for free from a friend :D.



I started tearing into the engine





I couldnt resist taking a picture of the corral, and if you couldnt tell, I come from a Ford family, Oh yea my Moms Mustang isnt in this pic so yes we have 6 Fords :icon_thumby:

I think the '00-03 F150 is one of the best looking trucks on the road.

Nice find! :icon_thumby:

Could you drop a 5.4 in instead of the 4.6?

I could and Ive thought about it. But then I would have to get the PCM to go with it and get the PATS sorted out, thats not even a big deal with a flash tuner.

I rather just get it back on the road for the least amount of money. The idea of not having a Ranger scares me so I might just end up trading it in on '02 -'03 extended Cab Edge. Who knows.....

That's my dads other project. He originally bought a '94 Splash for $1200, ended up trading the Ranger for the Fox. The best part is the Fox already has 347, eddy heads, Cobra Intake, a roller cam with roller rockers and a whole bunch of other parts. Its a pretty quick car, Unfortunately we already managed to grenade the T5 so Its just sitting for now. Once the Cobra gets sold hes got some big plans for it, something along the lines of a 351 based build along with a turbo or lots of spray.

I'm gonna DD the F150, my '96 needs to go but I might end up trading the 150 in on another Ranger.
