and when i was 17, i worked my *** off to get my tires, lights, rollbar, my new bed, any parts that i broke and payed my insurance. anything is possible you lazy degenerate. get off your dumbass and you'll find out, you don't have any excuses you lifeless oaf.

Oh my god kid, go play in traffic, drive fast and swerve, etc. I could care less what your opinion of me is. I come on here to learn about my own truck, and help other people learn about theirs. That to me is not a waste of time because knowledge is power. Think what you want, until you have actually lived as an adult, learn what responsibility is, can vote, buy cigarettes, or a beer, then you have no real opinion in the world. Now go do some homework or make yourself useful to society in some way.

back closer to topic, regardless of what was said above, 4.0's are good engines, and unlike a cummins you can find one pretty reasonable, a complete engine often under $500. after having a 3.slow I would never go back to it now that i have a 4.0. dont let people discourage u from the swap. if u want it bad enough and have the ability to do it, go for it!

I agree, the 4.0 is a great motor for what it is, will last forever if you take care of it. In my opinion tho, if you are going to go through the work of doing the swap, you might as well put in a 5.0. Gas mileage will not be much different and you will see a lot more power. I think one guy is actually in the process of doing a cab swap on a 4.0 frame on here from a 3.0, so that's doable too.

I'm 25, not that that is any of your business. And I've heard every Navy joke in the book, and I can see the humor in them. I work with the marine corps and deploy with them, so I get **** every day for being navy. Every branch has jokes about the other branches. Until you sacrifice a little and do something bigger than yourself, and contribute something to society and our country, then you do not matter. Working 5 days a week flipping burgers at McDonald's does not make you any less of a kid. Sounds like your parents did you a favor buying you a vehicle and you are an inconsiderate ***** because you cannot appreciate that. Now, I'm done arguing with you, grow up, and quit posting your stupid crap.

Underdog is not out of business. I just e-mailed Wayne a couple weeks ago. Took him a couple days to respond, but he did. I think the confusion is that people ordering the 4.0 pulley kit had been on backorder for a while because of the manufacturer being delayed.

Sorry about that guys, I hadn't visited this thread yet. Next time that happens just hit that little report button under the user's name. It will get handled much quicker that way.

profl, how can you comoare a swap form a cummings and a 4.0??? the cummings swap could cost 6000k+ and be a lot of work, like really al ot of work considering you will need to fabric every mount for it, beef up the rear end and work on the front end and suspension so it can hold the weight of the diesel.....it is even more like a 10 grand job....while a 4.0 would fit right in whiout chaning mount or anything...geez i think he can even use the same tranny.... a cumming drop in a ranger aint no small thing
