Well the swap is happening for real i am getting the motor back from the machine shop Saturday and I will begin that afternoon my tranny is part at the moment and is reciving the "jmod" to it and will be put back together on Monday. I have the entire week to do the swap and I have pretty much everything I need but if anybody has any pointers who has done the swap it would be greatly appreciated.

Alright there is progress....
Saturday I got to the machine shop at 6 am ready to get my motor finished up, ended up staying there all day till 5 but the motor is sparkling along with new parts that the owner just threw on because there where just siting there. So that night I didn't get much done other than getting the motor to the shed and cleaning the motor bay.
Today I drove the ranger to my friends house and started tearing in to it and by 3 the motor was ready to be pulled but I had to go to harbor freight to get a hoist so the motor came out about 7 and is now waiting for me to give everything a good scrub before I start throwing new stuff in it.

So Monday I dident get as much as I wanted done just pressure washed the engine bay then put the new motor mounts in which was a bitch. After that I finished putting the trams back together then got that in place but today's plan is to start test fitting the motor and see if I can get the wiring started

Alright I'm getting some where, it's in and things are coming together the motor went in today and I got almost all the rest of the little parts that I need to finish this, but the hard part is yet to come ... The wiring but I have both evtms and both vehicles where made in 2000 so I'm hoping the problems are minimal

Well it's still coming along I have run in to a few issues with the vacuum trying to figure out where everything goes if anybody has delt with this let me know it would be appreciated.... So anyways other than that there is not much else other than finishing the wiring and breaking in the engine and maybe getting the drive shaft shortened but I will find all this stuff out tomorrow also for anybody going to do this put the tranny on before you get it in the truck or it takes forever to mate them in the truck
