I changed the one on the '96 I used to have, in about 20 minutes, cost $25 but that was about 4 years ago before I bought the Ranger. Mine was the 4.0 V6. The fan blades are hard on the knuckles but I managed to remove the belt without taking off the fan,using a ratchet and turning the fan by hand to keep it out of the way (wear gloves). It's just one bolt.
