Im new n from up north in upstate new york...

Well...my name is Bryan I live near the Adirondacks...i own a 1999 ranger XLT step side extended cab 3.0L 4x4...right now its completely stock but i want to do some work to it...eventually i want to put a 5.5 or 6 inch suspension lift wit a 3 inch body lift and i want to run around a 37 inch tire...i know i dream big ha ha...from the trucks iv seen on here it's looking like a 5.5 or 6 inch lift will do just fine with 33s or 35s...right now the engine is blown...it was my brothers truck n on his way to work one day the oil light came on and then the truck just shut down n wouldn't even try to turn over...A tech said that the oil pump shaft broke so I'm looking at doing a 5.0 engine swap when I get some money together or ill just get a new 3.0 n put it in in place of the other one...my brother gave it to me because I'm the more mechanically inclined person in my family and he didn't want to deal with it anymore...he's not a ford man anyway...there's really not much wrong with it other than the 4x4 acts up sometimes...it only works when it wants to ha ha

welcome welcome from another ny'er, as far as members on here you'd be the first ny'er to do a v8 swap, unless D gets his in.
