Can anyone here tell me if the intake (especially the upper) from a 1990 4.0L ranger will interchange with my 1994 4.0L ranger?? I've got a chance to buy the whole assembly REALLY cheap and thought it would be a great way to get that thing cleaned up real nice and maybe a little basic port/polish without having the truck out of commission for days on end. Also, anyone here ever experimented with ported intake on a 4.0L??
thanks

Hi JC,

I don't know enough about suspension systems to advise you wether or not to
replace suspension components. To see what I did,

Check out this web site:

http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.truckworld.com/4x4-OffRoad/98-duff-bronco/duffbronco2.html

I copied their suspension work to the letter. I kept most of my body, though. I
still have to drive my car in teh rain!

Take care and be safe,

Adam
