Sorry about that ...
Yes, I got it all put back together. I just haven't taken anymore pictures, because I'm looking for a 4X4 lower valence with fogs for a 2004 XLT. I found one, but it's like 200 miles away.
It took us 4 days to do this project, 2 days longer than I thought ... and that was mainly because it was so hard taking the cab bolts out and it was a b*tch swapping out the fuse box harness. I learned the hard way that the fuse box harness is just one big harness that loops all the way around the front clip and goes back in the other side of the cab.
But, I love the extra power of the 4.0 SOHC and it doesn't use much more gas than my
2WD with the 3.0L.

LOL ... I'll show you in person that I did the swap. I hope that I can find a 4X4 lower valence on my way up there.

The finished product ... I finally got Blackie put back together.
Now I just need to get my 4X4 decals on the bed and I'll be done.

Looks good, but quit bashing the 3.0 it's not as bad as you say lol. I had no problems with mine running 33's. It's a good motor, but for a 4x4 I'd rather have the 4.0.
