The computer, keys, ignition tumbler, door locks, and PATS module all came from the same truck, so I won't have to take the truck in to be re-programmed. This makes it a completely plug and play swap.







I still need to pick up a drive-shaft, clutch hydraulic line, trans fluid, and the rear main seal set. Once I have all of that, I should be ready to do the swap.

Then it's just a matter of getting the days off so that I can have 48 un-interuppted hours to get this done.

Yayyyyy!!!!!

you had better send me the pics, faggot <3 <3 <3

Gears look pretty decent inside the M5OD. No chipped gears, nice crisp edges, etc.

Went ahead and cleaned up whatever that yellow thing is after I took the picture.

Driveshaft has arrived and is now in my possession. Gonna go to Ford on Friday and order the little plate that goes in between the engine and transmission since it's cheap as shit. I've been over my lists three times now, and once I have that plate, there shouldn't be anything else that I need to buy for the actual swap.

However, I will also be ordering the 2003 wiring diagrams so that I can add the clutch pedal position switch to my truck. Technically that's part of the swap, but I want to have it done before I start on the swap just to make my life easier.

Where in the hell did you find that driveshaft?! Those things are about as rare as the full length console.

Waiting on the engine to transmission plate from Ford. Bought the brake fluid for the clutch master cylinder, and also bought new self adjuster kits and the brake spring kit so I can make sure my E-Brake is strong.

My 03 wiring diagrams came in, and I'm still in the process of working out where each wire goes and where I will be putting them. Once I get a solid game plan written I'll go ahead and wire in the clutch safety switch.

Maybe sometime this weekend I'll rebuild the rear brakes so I won't have to worry about that next week.

Hoping to get the 5-speed swap done next weekend.

Swapping to a 5-speed can give you a stomach ulcer, especially if your truck has the PATS system. But it's definitely worth it.

And thanks!

I already have Saturday off from both jobs, and have requested Sunday off as well so I can have two uninterrupted days to get the 5-speed swap done. Plan on starting at 6am on Saturday, having most of the bulk work done by Saturday night, and then tying up loose ends most of Sunday, and then hopefully have it done Sunday night, so that I can go to work on Monday. lol.

Working out the clutch safety switch wiring as we speak, probably gonna wire that up tomorrow or Thursday.

Thumbs up Re: Sticks-2003 Ranger Edge

I hope you can get this done in 2 days. I'm assuming you have someone to help you pull that old slush box out.
If you get a little frustrated, I give you permission to take a baseball bat to my white Ranger.

Good Luck!
