The plugs all changed as well as the fuse box location in 04.The motor swap would almost be easier than the dash and frame harness swap. The you will also need the keys from the pcm donor truck or you won't even be able to get it to crank or run because of the pats system.
Hey John,

I see what you're saying ... I'll go ahead and put the 2001 4.0L in my 2004 Ranger. If I get a 2004 PCM and the wiring harness that it was matched with from the factory then I don't see why it wouldn't work. And as far as the PATS go, I already plan on swapping out the ignitions.
After I do the conversion, the 2001 Edge will have a primo 2004 3.0L with a little over 63K miles and I'll give you first dibs on it if you're interested.
btw ... my 2004 auto trans is in mint condition too.

Yeah, I live over in Hillview, I'm really close to the Bullitt County line. If I can't do the engine conversion. I'll definitely need your help replacing the frame.

Yeah, That would be a long way for you to tow a Ranger ... lol
Hopefully I'll be able to find a local buyer.
btw ... I might be able to use the 2001 PCM and wiring harness for a 3.0L that you offered me earlier.
How much are you asking for it?

I would make you a good deal on it but I don't have the matching pats keys for it. It was a parts truck with no keys.

Yeah its rare when we have any earthquakes around here and then you usually can't feel them. BTW those cabs were only in the air long enough to roll the frames to do the swap.

Well, If you give me a good deal on the 2001 PCM and wiring harness, I might be able to take it to a dealership and have them reprogram the PATS.
I'll have a 2004 PCM and wiring harness but from what you said earlier I don't think I can put that in my 2001.

If I have time I'll pull it out this evening and check it out. You will probably need the 01 injectors too.
