Good luck and thank you very much for your posts. I have 2002 3.0L and am collecting the bits and pieces I will need for a future 5.0L swap. This thread has been most helpful in making my parts list.

I'm happy to report she's alive again. We were able to get everything installed and buttoned up on Easter Sunday. Amazingly smooth. I love this truck.

Just checking in guys, truck is still running amazing. No problems since the new crank installed, got less then 10k miles on her now.

I'm deployed back overseas again for a few years to make up some money that I spent on this build and to get a roll cage put in. The latest upgrade I did before I left was a quick disconnect steering wheel.

When I go home for vacation I'll post up some new pics.

Quick question. The 42 pin explorer connector to your Ranger 42 pin works wire for wire as is except for the few changes you posted a couple pages back from WIN? I was just worried about burning the PCM up since some of the colors don’t match from the two different vehicles.

Thanks

Yeah follow the guide I posted a few pages back. It's a good idea to get the wiring manual for each year on eBay.
