due to their age,popularity gen I,II rangers would need the most help,they're still alot of these trucks on the road and most likely to break down,any more help for these trucks would be helpful.

not sure if im in the right post or not but my question and I've seen it in other places too, is which years ran as a 4cyl 4x4? looking to do some kind of hobby and would like to do up a 2.3 or 2.5 4 cyl 4x4 reg cab. Something to scare away the little SUV's with the cell phone attached to their ear.

Torque and clearances for all internal engine components. I busted some main-cap bolts using internet numbers that were waaay incorrect. I had to call a machine shop to get bearing clearances during my rebuild.

V6 transmissions will NOT bolt up. Any 4 cylinder Ranger transmission from 2000 or older will bolt up.

I had a "california smog adventure" with my 92 2.3l, in the end, i got everything to function correctly. Hopefully; this will save some of you dudes a little time and energy and hopefully some money too, by replacing only the required items.

Id say, a 20 year old truck is going to NEED some TLC at some point, treat your baby right and she will reward you with upper 20mpg, performance and reliability. :)
