Default Need New 3.0 Engine For Sons 2003 Ranger Edge

Well my son called me a few days back and said, Dad my truck died as I exiting the freeway. It's smoking and won't run. So I drive to where he's at and pop the hood and don't see anything except a dry radiator resevoir. Then I crawl under it and see oil everywhere. I crawl under a bit more to look at the oil pan and see two holes in the side of the pan. Then go back up top to pull the oil stick and it's stuck and had to pull really hard to get it out. So without actually pulling the oil pan I'm thinking we need a motor here and was wondering if anyone here new where to get a low milage 3.0 motor here in Southern California. I found one on line from the attached place below but not sure if they are reliable. Any help would be apprreciated.

I was thinking about putting a 4.0 in it but not sure what all extra I would have to switch out for that. I'll check out those other web sites. Thanks for the help.

Switching to the 5.0 and the 4 should be easy most of the plugs are plug and play for the most part. There is alot of info in the motor swap section. Good luck
