Yeah, there's a lot of stuff that needs to be replaced, but it'll be worth every dime just to get rid of that 3.slow.

the kind that mates to a 4.0. the 4.0 doesn't share bolt patterns with any other ranger trans except the 2.9, but it's a far weaker trans.

the best and easiest way to do it is get a donor truck. be able to sit them side by side and pull whatever you need. i've done a 4.0 swap on my 93, but it's a newer motor so i'm dealing with wiring and a lot of other things.
