found a 8.8

i found a ranger 8.8 28 spline with 3.73 gear ration with the leafs 3in blocks and u bolts and it looks to me like a james duff traction bar well... the junk yard wants 300$ for it all its coming off a 1997 4x4 splash ranger

will this traction bar work for my ranger and will everything just bolt right onto my 2000 ranger 2wd? ima take the 8.8 off the old leafs and put them on my leafs and put the traction bar on ect.. ill get pictures soon.. im pretty sure ima just go ahead and buy this just incase

2008 FX4 Ranger
2000 2WD

I'd not get that axle...and find one with a 4.10 ratio.

The bars should work...everything should be just a direct swap.
