|Good Morning Ranger_Danger_,
The Truck is looking good, what color are you going with ?
As to the V-8 Swap, first what's the climit like in the Department of Motor Vehicles about Swaps, will you be able to get an inspection Sticker or is that even a problem in FL ?
Next there are a lot of articles in the three Ranger Site I check into. If you want addies I can pull them but try this link after you check the "How-To's" on this site.
You will need to go to these sites, check out their How-To's and start asking questions.
There are so many thing tho watch for, it is hard to say hit me with all the answers and this swap has been done a lot so there should be enough help in any of the sites.
Get as much info as possible up front, don't start this swap until you know you have all your questions answered, although it is straight forward swap in a lot of way, it will get complicated fast if you are not sure of what you are doing.
Good Luck with the V8 Swap.
p.s. on the "ranger-forums.com" site, if you have a question, ask RonD, he seems to have a lot of the answers. This site has good people too but it doesn't hurt to have two sites working for you.
