Almost done with the full write up, found out that running a returnless system on the 97 computer doesn't work out too well, it would run awesome until it got warm and then go extremely rich and shudder really bad under load, even tried having a custom tune wrote for it but there wasn't much they could do. So i ran a return fuel line and put the stock rails back on- runs like a champ now, 4wd works, have two "little" issues to finish up- the AC wiring difference from 97 to 00 and the tach mod so my rpms don't look like they're through the roof. i've been driving it around for a week now, idles smooth, pulls hard, shifts nice. Very happy with the swap so far, gonna finish the write up tomorrow, take a video, and be all done with it- for now. :-)

I was looking at how to do this but I also found out that the 5.8 V8 will also fit into the rangers if they have a body lift so now I'm planning on doing the 5.8
