There was a sticky in this forum from Jrod-13. I was cleaning out some info to compile it and somehow accidently erased the whole thread. If you had a recent post in that sticky I appologize.

I have a question thats probably hasn't been asked. I own a 2003 ranger 4x4 with a manual trans. I really like the truck & want to keep it but the fuel economy really sucks. I wanted to know if was possible to get the same year 2.3L & swap it out with the 4.0 thats in it now & still use the same manual trans that it already has. Thanks
