Replacing Starter in 4.0 4x4 - wow!?!
I decided to replace the starter in my sons 2003 ranger and thought it would be as easy as my old 1987 2.9....wrong! I can't get to the upper bolt and have read everything from removing manifold, drive shaft, transfer case, 3 feet of ratchet extension, etc... Don't have a lift, so everything needs to be done "wheels on ground". What is the definitive method here (and no, taking it to a garage is not an option)? Thanks...
