What does the 98 Ranger have in it now?
The 3.0, (so I am told), is a red headed step child and will only bolt up to a 3.0 bell housing. Other than that, you will will need the engine wiring harness, complete with computer, and if you swap out the transmission, you will need the harness for that I think.
It should just fit in place of what ever is in the 98 now, if you take the aforementioned parts with it.
