I'm looking into swapping a 5.0 into an old ranger. Had a few questions anyone ever done the swap!

I've seen it done, usually done with an explorer 5.0 from a similar year.
Would an f150 5.0/aod engine/trans fit?
Could get that for $300 and the ranger for free... Tempting...
I doubt it due to size, I think Brinker88 would know that answer
Ya I doubt it to. But get him in here to comment.
i know this is old i forgit about this site.. any way i just finished my 88 5.0 swap and yes the f150 5.0 and aod will fit but the problem is the truck trans has a bigger flywheel and the cars have a smaller flywheel witch in turn the car trans is a better swap incace you ever have to take the thing out. but if your looking for 4x4 then a f150 trans is about the only option out their. a body lift over comes this problem
^^Good advice man! Welcome back!
