pre 98, IIRC. Youre gonna need the harness, tranny and motor...plus some patients....but i think if youre already gonna swap motors, why not just do a 302 swap and call it good?

Well if it gas milage you want toss in a 2.5Lima or the 2.3 duratech....way good gas milage! But for power your gonna want the 4.0. Try and get one from a 4x that way you wont have to track down a tranny pan for a 4x.

Doesnt a 5.0 get better gas mileage than the 4.0? That is if you keep your foot off the floor.
