If they didn't do it right I'd recomend getting a V8 F150 4x4 of the same year and go from there. Sometimes to get things to fit people do different things. And sometimes not all of them are correct. I helped a friend with an S10 finish a swap today that encounterd incorrect mounts and oil pan. He was using a different truck though, but I wouldn't rule it out either. Psyco Pete is correct on this one. And it will go alot faster than the EFI swap, because there's no wiring basicly compared to the EFI version, no oxygen sensors to fool with and your exhaust will be alot easier too because of these facts. I say it can be done in 3 to 4 days. But it still will have it's challenges though.

Measure from back wheel to front wheel. That will affect exhaust also. If already 4x4, then you should be set.
1993 was when things started changing for the ranger a bit. Different wheel bases, cross members, transfer cases, trannys, etc. If he has an LWB instead of the SWB he should be fine. 1995 was the last year of the long bed Ranger if I'm not mistaken, either that year or 1994. I'm not too sure on that.
This is my friend's 1955 F100. He used a 1994 Ford Ranger Long Bed frame to build this truck from the ground up.
