The best way to put a 7.3 in a ranger would be to buy a 7.3 f250, bob the frame and make the ranger cab and bed fit on the f250 frame. Bam 7.3 ranger. I once put a ranger body on an international scout2 chassis and power train. I called it the stranger ranger..... Good times.

That is still awesome. I have seen a few gen one rangers with a 460, so i guess a 7.3 is actually doable with time and money

That looks good. Right now I wont be doing anything to it. Just fixed the front end ticking noise coming from the axle shafts. My 4.0 has 94,xxx miles. No need for a new motor, more problems and no truck to drive. It would be interesting to have that big block under the hood.

I too am doing such a swap, in a 1990 extended cab, short bed, two wheel drive. I'm using a 5-speed from a 93 F-150, 83 F-250 motor mounts, 86 F series short tube headers, Explorer 2-row radiator moved forward 2 inches with an electric cooling fan, oil filter relocation kit, Fox Body Mustang Dual Sump oil pan. As all parts are not "bolt-in", will have to do some "custom" work for it to go together. Hope my ideas will point you in the right direction. Chris

You've got the right idea, if I was going to do 1 in a daily driver vehicle that is exactly how I would go about it.
