Update: New Motor

Well, I finally got my truck up and running.

I ended up buying a used motor off a guy on here and dropping it in my truck.
Just a lil ol' 3.0. It only ended up costing me about $800 for the used motor, removing the old one from my truck, and installation of the new one.

I'm in need of a few upgrades tho. Such as new pulleys (from JunesModified), and some gears. Just haven't had time to make it out to the junkyard just yet.

Nevertheless, my truck is back on the......mud?!

Now that shes up and running, I want to eventually get some pre-runner fenders, and a suspension lift. I'm also thinking about a chip. Does it make a huge difference for my truck?!

very nice!

I would get my products from Wayne, he is on the site daily and here to help.

www.stuffforyourranger.com/store

SFYR has the Xcal 2 tuner (like a chip but better) through Rogue Performance and he is very good with the 3.0L. They also have the pullies you are looking for.

Wayne ships extremely fast too.

I have heard some horror stories about JusnesModified and getting tuners from them.

Chip makes a huge difference. Get one! I got my tuner from Jusnes with no problems, but I have had other problems with them. Glad to hear the truck is back to flinging up mud!

You had a 3.0 correct?

What was the problem with it? Anything due to a Cam syncronizer gear?
