he has to trade it or that is the rumor anyways.

i can think of atleast 3-4 more trucks that have that same charger on it. its not that rare really.

now an M112 on a 4.0 that is alittle rare but has been done.

The BBK is not in production and have a good time finding one and hope you never break it.

Doug Studdard (owner of Bamachips) put a whipple on his 99 3.0, took some work, don't remember what it was though. He has since sold the Ranger and is now driving a 05 Rousch Mustang.

I have a write up on a supercharger setup for the 4.0 OHV. It uses an Eaton M90. It can be done and I am planning on doing it within the next 6 months.
