    SOHC motor Swap into Sport Trac

    Can I put a 98 Explorer Sport SOHC V6 4WD into the 2005-2010 Sport Trac? What about the Adrenalin?

    I'm looking for an OEM tonneau cover for my '03 ST under $500. If not OEM, something sturdy and reliable that won't break the bank. I bought an after-market cover that claimed to fit the '03 ST, but upon trying to install it I realized I needed bed rails or something for the cover to clamp...
