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 was thinking about doing a trans swap and I have read this entire thread was wanting to know if anyone had any insight on doing it on an 04 xlt 4x4.

I need to do this. I have come to the realization that a manual swap is the only way to squeeze some more mpgs out of my truck. I guess I will probably wait till my auto gives out.

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.

I personally like manuals over autos anyday. only reason I bought my truck as an auto was because I couldnt find the same options in a manual without well over 100k miles on them.

I feel the same way and that's enough reason to do the swap.

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!

Parts list:

Manual trans with tail housing (Year and motor dependent) - $145
Flywheel (New or machined) - Wasn't charged but $35 for it to be machined
Starter (adaptive to manual trans) - Wasn't charged for this
PCM (manual trans, preferably the PCM from the truck you pulled the tranny from) - Wasn't charged for this
Wiring harness - $5
Pedal assembly - Wasn't charged for this
Master clyinder - Wasn't charged for this
Clutch resevoir - Wasn't charged for this
Clutch line - $78.56 from Ford direct
Slave cylinder - $64 from Schucks/Kreger
Clutch kit - $230 from Schucks
New steering column surrounding plastic - $2.50 (split between this and the floor plate, at least what I was charged for)
Floor plate with hole cut for manual trans shifter - $2.50
Plastic piece with rubber boot that goes on top of the floor plate - Wasn't charged for this
Trans shifter - Free from Shane, making my own setup
Shifter extension (If body lifted) - Making my own
Shifter Ball - FX4 BALL!!! - Around $50
Shifter Boot - Unsure yet, going to have one made I think
Floor bezel (bezel with cup holders, expo console or what have you) - Using my console

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.
