Hello ExplorerForum,

Been a frequent lurker for the past 5 years but never had any questions to ask until recently.

My trucks been very well maintained over the course of it's *known* life. It's been smooth all the way up until the start of last year, transmission starting to slip, engine now has a light knocking noise.

Well, I've come across a really good deal on a 2016 Ford F-150 3.5-Liter Twin-Turbo EcoBoost V6 engine and matching 10-Speed Transmission, and Wiring Harness. All from a RWD truck, my truck is also RWD.


Should I do the swap? What obstacles might I face?

Yes you should.

Problems you'll face? All of them.
