Why use a used master cyl?!?!???
That's straight up stupidity there IMO.

Really? 'Cause I just looked 'em up via RockAuto...
Explorer : 1 1/16" bore size
Ranger : 1 1/16" bore size
In fact, Raybestos # MC390398 interchanges for both models.
If you were after more pedal force and a bigger bore, dropping in a 92-97 F-250 master (1 1/4") would do the trick. Something I've got on mine.

Anybody have actual parts suggestions? Because my research and experience doing this swap a number of times always comes up empty handed with what ya'll are suggesting...
Do ya'll suggest adding an Explorer 4x4 ABS pump to the Ranger? If so, I've never read of one person actually doing so...
