It's 2010 and that's for 97 and older trucks. Way to be 13 years too late.

all 302`s and 5.0l engines have the same engine mounting points on the block

all 2002 5.0l explorer injected engines will bolt in a ranger with that kit

that kit has been available since the beginning of time.

cheese_man, in 2002 explorers didn't have 5.0's do you know any information that is accurate? or do you just think of things and type them?
