I have some repair manuals for both and I think that is all in there. All I really need to do is figure out what I need and dont need in the ranger harness. The mustang harness is pretty much engine only, should be plug and play.

Anti wrap bar made, used 2x2 .187 wall, pretty beef


Installed


Made a mount for my fan. I didn't want to use zip ties and I wanted it on the 'frame' of the radiator, not in the core. Turned out alright

Fan is a derale, 17" 2 speed fan the will pull around 2500cfms.




Installed in the truck, fits nice


Now to make cooler mounts.

Will do

I have a 185* stat in it now. That is an explorer thick core radiator and from what I have read, they work fine. If not I will get a aluminum one. What are you using?
