3.0 to 4.0 conversion??

Well, I have been thinking about this for a long time and now I have access to a truck that can donate all I need I hope to convert my 3.0 to a 4.0. I have never done anything like this so just testing the waters to see. I was just curious if anyone has done this and how hard is it to do?

If someone donated me a 4.0 and I knew how to switch an engine and the parts, I would take it.

I've done 1 , sold my original 4.0 to a local with an 02 Tremor. He had to pickup a fuel system and have his ecm flashed by Ford ( if you have a whole donar truck.. you wont have to do such ).

Its not THAT hard, have friends and some beer. Make sure the friends don't sit around guarding the beer though . Took us a total of .. 6 hours.. 4 people whom knew what they were doing ( all ranger owners ). Everything was CLEAN, nothing in the way.

Honestly.. Not really. If your 3.0 is dying, on its way out.. knocking, burning oil.. or if your Travis and.. Nevermind ( LOL! )..

Its a considerable swap if your not buying a remanufactured mill or if your working a budget. A whole donar truck can be had from an insurance wreck for less then a grand in my area.
