Would my 98 ranger 4.0 v6 rwd automatic

motor and manual transmission if I were to
install the engine and trans in the ranger

It might work, but the 300 6cyl. is probably longer than the original engine. It will require quite a few modifications such as cooling system, engine wiring, motor mounts modification, transmission mount modification, exhaust modification and a different driveshaft also. Also the oil pan on the 300 may or may not clear the cross member.
