Welcome, is the 99 ranger a 4WD? if so it still takes skill and a little money but you have the right combination.

If the ranger is a 2wd... get out the check book trust me.

Mostly time. You have just about everything you need between the two of them to swap it over. An adapter to switch from awd to 4wd is your main part needed.
