I'll see what Ray would charge. He's really reasonable but it would be here in St. Cloud. I'll pm you a price tomorrow after I get off work if you're interested. My 3.0 has a cam going out and need to scrape up the money to replace the engine. Is that a common occurrence with Rangers (bad cams)?

True. St. Cloud Tech charges 5 or 10% of what it would cost from a body shop and parts.

Never really heard about cams going out on the Vulcan motors. Worst I've heard are cylinder heads needing valve jobs early and if the cooling system is neglected blowing head gaskets.
