Hi all! My name is Matt, from Georgia! Great to be here!

I have a big question and I'm not really sure where to post this yet, but hopefully, if this is the wrong place, some kind soul will redirect me! So here goes...

What do I have to do to (wiring wise) to swap a 2001 4.0 Explorer motor to a 1996 Explorer?

Thanks in advance! I'm very grateful to have found this forum and I wish you all a fabulous day!

Matt, welcome to the forum from southern Va. Post your question in the 2nd gen forum & I am sure 410 Fortune will respond to your question. He has done many swaps & can surely help you out.

Welcome to this forum! Swapping the PCM with the wiring harness is the proper way to do it. Don't try to splice connectors into the wiring harness. You don't want to have cut wiring with crimp connectors all over the engine bay.
