Ive read it as well, the nice part is its all coming from one truck so I looked and took some pics of how it all fit on there. I ran into a snag right now as my hopes that I could modify a set of 93-97 pedals didnt work and I cant find any local 98+ pedals
no where near, The 97 and earlier ranger have the ones that reach up into the dash where as the 98 + ones have the ones with 4 brake booster bolts and 2 upper support bolts with the clutch being a small side piece. The old ones the brake and clutch use the same hinge pin. It can be made to work but not well and Id rather not use it
Haha no, but I never thought you had to. Were talking about the actual starter motor for the engine right? What otter parts do I need for the starter besides a starter for a manual transmission ranger?
I could see swapping to a manual for a few good reasons but doing it for fuel economy alone doesn't seem worth the effort. The city and highway ratings for the 4.0 manual vs the 4.0 automatic are within 1 MPG of each other. Modern automatics have closed the FE gap to manuals.
Now most of you know I'm going to be swapping the auto out this week. I'm hoping by Saturday, but if not before then... Then on Saturday for sure.
I have all the compenents I need for the swap.
Picked up my stock shifter from Shane tonight as well as a manual trans tail housing for my trans. Imagine that, shane has enough parts to build a new ranger from the ground up lol.
Also took my flywheel I pulled off that 02 that was wrecked into the machine shop and had it resurfaced for $35.
Shane picked me up my floor plate and steering column shroud today too for $5. Oh and I also picked up my clutch line from Billy's dad at Ford for $78 and some change.... Happy to say, I'll have an FX4 ball soon as well. Thanks Billy's dad!
I'm going to go full blown OEM swap. I even took the factory wiring tied to that PCM from the truck I pulled everything from. New clutch and slave and i'll be good for quite some time! Oh and can't forget about my already 31 spline swap that took place 2 days ago!
I'll have pics soon guys, when I do it... Just wanted to make this thread to get it going. Shane will probably take more pics than me, but eventually, all the pics will be up!

Right now I'm sitting at just over $600 for the swap. Just depends on who you know and what you can get in your tool box when you leave a junk yard lol
If I'm leaving something else lemme know, but that should be everything.
Now kind of a stupid question but why do you need a new PCM and starter? Looking into swapping my 01' 2wd to standard
Pcm because the Auto PCM is programmed to receive signals from the trans to function properly and most importantly to allow it to Rev over 3k. Starter because the one on a 4.0 is different from auto to standard. 3.0 is the same both ways though.
