Gearing up to do a swap on a '89 and I'm in the process of looking for a donor. I've been reading all of the excellent info here, but perusing the 4.0 Swap FAQ's I ran across this and It seems contradictory:

"If you’re swapping a 4.0L in to a 1989 or 1990 Bronco II you can use your existing dash. However, if the 4.0L and wiring harness came from an Explorer, you’ll need the Explorer dash."

In the next paragtraph:

"89+ you don’t need the dash. The 90+ 4.0 and 2.9 dash harnesses were the same."

So, if the donor harness came from an Explorer, do I need the explorer dash or not?

Another question, is there any reason you couldn't use the wiring harness from a Ranger on an engine that came from an Explorer or Aerostar?
