Swap a 4.0 from a 96 explorer into a 99 ranger 5 speed

Asked by Mar 02, 2018 at 11:55 PM about the 1999 Ford Ranger XL Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I Have a 99 ranger 4.0 v6 with a blown head
gasket. Found a 96 explorer for cheap with a 4.0 v6
in it. The explorer has an automatic transmission
and my ranger is a 5 speed 2wd. Will the explorer
motor bolt up to my transmission? And I'm also
concerned about the wiring harness and tripping
the anti theft. Please help.
