I am putting a cummins in my ranger towards the end of the summer, BUT I need to make motor mounts and figure out where to locate the turbo. So....
would like a rolling chassis to put the cummins into several times to clearance the pan for the front diff, make engine mounts and figure out where exactly to locate the engine in the truck.
Cn anyone tell me with Certainty what year ranger frames would be the same as my 04 for a mock up
On the frame with the coil spring front suspension if you have a 3.0 there's a 2" riser block between the frame and the motor mount on the driver's side. It's a real PITA to remove because you got to remove the coil spring to gain access to the nut to remove the motor mounts but you shouldn't have to worry about this because it looks like you have the torsion bar front suspension.
