Biggest things are:
Are you thinking of keeping the Carb or going EFI ?
Unless you are thinking big horse power the EFI engine will run better and adapt to any little mods you might want to do.
EFI Harnesses are readily available, pricey but it makes things easier.
There are plenty of Explorer/5.0L Swap threads and How-To's on this site and other Ranger sites.
