I've swapped from automatic to standard in different vehicles over the years, but not a Ranger.
Its not hard if you have both vehicles to pick and choose parts from. The pedals are probably as hard to change as the trans, at least if you have a bad back like me it is. Getting under the dash is a bit of a challenge these days.

In later models, you may need to change the computer. Seeing how the engine and trans are both computer controlled, the engine may not run the same with a standard if it is being controlled by a computer programmed for an automatic, if you know what I mean. Like anything computer controlled, it needs the correct programming.

No computer changes needed, Rangers dont use electronic transmissions controlled by the Engine Computer. But you need to make sure you got a trans from another 3.0, all the bell housings are different for the engines. Also if your truck is 4x4, your gonna have to get one with a transfer case as well. But ive never done it, this is just stuff i know, somewhere on here has done it I dont remember who, but im sure theyll chime in eventually

So It is my understanding that I need a tranny form the same year, all need to do is put the tranny and and it will work just fine and I just need to plug in the wiring harness right?
I have access to pedals and stuff like that, Do I need a new transfer case? has anyone on here ever done this before?
