Is anyone still around that has done this swap? I'm about to put my 86 ranger cab on a bronco frame. Trying to find out if I'll be able to keep the same front to rear alignment of the front body mounts the same and be able to clear the engije with the ranger firewall. I do plan on a body lift of needed

I know someone locally that did this. He used a first gen supercab Ranger on a full size Bronco frame, and the truck box was shortened a lot. He had a 460 in it. I am sure he custom build all of the body mounts.

Yea all the mounts will have to be custom, and I'm doing a flatbed so wheelbase isn't as big of a concern. But that gives me hope that it will work, especially if he has a 460
