I'll do you one better, a 351W bored and stroked to a 427!

But really, I would drop on a 5.0/5-speed and keep the rest looking mostly stock. You have to love a Sleeper.

You want more gas milage? Make your milage on that ranger even better. Install an electric fan. Make an intake and do an exhaust. If you don't want noise, you can get a quiet muffler for it instead. If you live in TN i'm sure the cops won't mind a mild exhaust system on a stock looking truck. Considering that it runs nice, I would do those 3 mods first. could probably squeeze out 2-3 mpg. These mods will make your truck a tad quicker too and easier to haul heavy loads. Tell us the plans for this vehicle and your wallet! Mild or Wild!
