    i went and picked up some anti-freeze, oil, oil filter, spark plugs, serpentine belt and a clutch kit for it too. thursday im going to have the truck towed to the garage so i can get the motor swap done. id do it but i dont have time to plus is not gonna be much to have them do it ($400 which includes putting clutch in and putting whatever parts needed from old motor onto new motor). i cant wait to start driving my truck :)

    oh and i only paid $200 for the motor and it has a 100 day warranty on it :)

    and thanks to my little brother Steve for going to pick up the motor for me today :worthy:

    I'm gonna take a guess that the bags will be first.

    LOL nah. gonna run a 4/5 static drop on it first. shit just to buy the kit to dao that is gonna cost between $350-500 depending on what brand i buy. i will probably go with the more expensive as its a better kit (made by Belltech). the only real reason why its so much to drop a Ranger is because it has I-beam suspension. stupid Ford :rant:

    Coolness. :bdn:

    I'm surprised your brother didn't lose the engine on the way to your place- it doesn't look to be tied down very well!

    static drop=non-adjustable suspension such as air ride or hydraulics.

    **UPDATE**

    well that motor didnt work because it was electronically different. for some reason my truck is OBD2 and thats an OBD1 motor. returned that motor to the junkyard i bought it from and got my money back (i kept the receipt for it). found a more local junkyard that had one out of a 96 Ranger with 84k miles and had it put in. the truck runs awesome other than the fact i have a small exhaust leak that will get fixed soon. anywho, got it back and gonna start driving it. gonna drive it for a few weeks and then sell my Integra because i cant afford to keep 2 vehicles at this moment. thats about it.
