Ok. I got one more big question for you before I cut up my motor mounts from my explorer. Did you switch sides with them cause it looks like you put the cut one with the slots on the driver side in the ranger but that one came out of the passenger side of my explorer
Thank you for your help. Just wondering if you had any issues with the check engine light being on after the swap. Don't know if your state has emissions or not but mine does and if the lights on they won't even inspect it. Just wondering because I know the evap systems are very different between the ranger and exploder. Just waiting on the v8 tranny to come back from the rebuilder and I can start my swap!
getting ready to install my 97 explorer 5.0 in my 96 ranger and reading your tech article like its the bible. just wondering if anything had to be done with the 42 pin connector for the engine harness to chassis harness or if it is plug and play?
Dang that truck sounds badass. I currently have 3.5* bushings also, but i've read that they are only goot for about 2" of cut coils. I also read that you would need 4* bushings to go 3" on cut coils. I've never heard of 4" cut coils being alignable. With 20s and 7" up front, do they rub?
