i need help
i own a 98 (beat to shit) ranger xlt with a 3.0l that i just lost the trans in
my dilemma is i found a nether option other than putting a new trans in
i found an 04 ranger with a 4.0l sohc auto 4x4 for 13,330 with 72000 miles
this would mean trading my truck in for.
my question is, is the 4.0l better than 3l and what do i have coming for the bad if i go with it

The 4.0L SOHC has more power... then the 4.0L OHV and alot more then the 3.0L. The 3.0L is like a cockroach and will last forever. The 4.0L has alot of power and can have better MPG then the 3.0l but not in some cases.

13,300 seems like alot for a ranger that old and that many miles. I got a 99 with the same miles for less then half that.

well thats just a little over a 31... and well my truck could easily fit 33's probably, its got 31's with nothing messed with and theres tons of room still.

If anything you can always have them test fit a tire and see if it will rub.
