  1. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Found this one super cheap off craigslist. 2wd s/c auto . Has what's left of a 3.0 v-6 under the hood i have had v-8 Rangers before, has any one here done a ls or other engine swap besides a 5.0 ?

    The progress continues had to have a special power steering hose made to Change the frame mounts on a front coil spring ranger you have to remove the f--n coil springs. on the 4x4 and torsion bar models there is room to get to the bolts with out taking stuff apart the engine is in the truck, but most likely will have to come back out for a mount adjustment. and yes putting a fully dressed v-8 into a a ranger is tiiiiiight.

    Anger update old rear diff is out, new 8.8 is in, 3:73 gear, disc brakes, rear sway bar and over rider traction bars in progress the old diff sat under the springs, the explorer diff sits on top so you also get a 4" rear ride height drop as a bonus.

  11. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Pulled the biohazard of the Mountianeer out of the mudhole spot next to the garage where it's been since Joey dropped it off started to pull it apart to get its V-8 goodness out well...... Again I have not really looked at this one except to make sure it started and ran before taking apart and here comes a surprise to keep in the course of this build this one that was thought and is badged all over as a all wheel drive is well in fact 2wd converted and whoever did it left all the 4wd front axles etc... But not transfer case... So bonus to me I don't have convert the trans.

    I got from Joey is the white one that one actually runs it's just been hit by a tree the green one I bought off craigslist no title runs good the guy thought it was a 2 Wheel Dr. so I don't look at it it starts right up runs good I was good no engine noise back it up do a burn out OK it works great give the 500 Bucks Drive it home put it in the driveway started to take it apart today and I started with saws all in the exhaust and I look at ,oh God damn this is a all wheel drive also the all-wheel-drive just doesn't work so I have two all-wheel-drive when I thought I had one all wheel drive and 1 2Wheel Dr. but oh well I have the parts for the conversion of the trans it'll just take another few days

  22. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Got the initial clean up done on the ranger , not bad for a $300.00 truck old block and trans ready to pull out In a rain delay at the minute Joey dropped off the Mountaineer donor should go pretty quick if I get time to stay on it
  23. 2001 Ford Ranger

    Na, the squirrels are way to small to spray, swap in the 5.0 and wait until the Falcon is at least running and drivable then do heads,cam and turbo
