Probably won't find any new kits for rebuilding the Auto Hubs, ebay is your best bet, people who have switch to Manual Hubs sell their old hubs.
Also wrecking yards could have what you need.
Manual is a better path, you can leave the hubs locked through out the winter months, so driver just needs to engage electric shift to get 4WD, it won't hurt anything.
In 2001 all Rangers got "live" front axles, meaning they were all Locked all the time.
And having the front drive train moving means differential and u-joints are always lubed, vs having dry spots when first engaged.
