Welcome to FRF! Swap to a 3.0? Go to at least a 4.0, same mpg but more power.

As long as the engine is newer then the car you are fine. Why would the 3.0 not be fine but the 4.0 not? Both would be ranger engines.

i thought the law was as long as your vehicle came from the factory with that option it was legal and i don't think the 2000 came with the 4.0L option but i could be wrong on the laws....

Welcome from NC and I think your truck had the 4.0 option when new! See list on forum of models from 2000 on.

Not sure about the laws, but the 2000 did come with a 4.0L option.

Never heard about the law like that only the engine being same or newer as the car it goes in. See 302s in BIIs and older Ranger at car shows that are street legal all the time.
