As this is my first swap, I will be taking my sweet time and don't plan to rush. I want to plan, plan and then when I think I got it all covered, plan some more. Here's what I got cooked up so far and please chime in with any and every bit of help and advice you can offer.
Base: 2000 ranger 4x4 ext cab
Lift: 3in body lift
Engine: 4bt (beat the s*** out of pan to fit) also need to know part number for adapter plate for 47rh transmission. And for billet flexplate
Injector pump: p7100 w/ all the freebie mods (adjustments)
Turbo: hx30w w/ manifold (part #4984697), mounted top
Intercooler: definitely would want one, need advice here for setup and plumbing
Transmission: 47rh 4x4 w/ compushift mini
4x4 selector switch: no idea, I don't have the awesome floor shifter....
Transfer case: open to suggestions.... Dodge again I would assume.... Perhaps 241?
Trans crossmembers: fabricate my own like I did engine mount plates.... Use rubber isolators, unless there is a simpler solution. I'm all ears.
Front axel: some kind of swap (Dana series)
Rear axel: explorer rear end w/ 3.31
Engine mounts: custom plates use ranger mounts
Starter: I heard I could use as factory 94-96 starter from a dodge 2500, may need a part number so I have the proper starter. Clearance issues???
Fuel lines: 1/2 feed, 3/8 return
Fuel: try to use ranger stock tank w/ wix33427 filter
Air intake: ah1141 filter, plumbing...open to suggestions
Oil filter: lf334
Powersteering: 2500 PS/vacuum setup
Vacuum pump: look above
Alternator: open to suggestions
A/c and heat: use components from ranger as they work good as it is. Will probably need bracket setup from member CrewCab59
Brakes: depends on axel swap upgrade but always open to advice, I hear stock will hold up but might upgrade to disc or even hydroboost
I'm sure I'm forgetting something things but this is off the top of my head. Please give any insight and information. Hoping to make it look very factory like.
