REAR AXLE ASSEMBLY SWAP
I'm considering upgrading my rear axle assembly on my 1995 Ford Ranger ... any suggestion?
I have 3.08 ratio open 8.8" axle now. Will it be good to swap that for 3.55 ratio non locking 8.8" axle with rear caliper from compatible 1995 - 1997 explorer in that range? I'm aware that rear axle assembly from Explorer is heavier than axle from Ranger ... Ranger have 2,750 compared to Explorer that have 3,200 lbs
Is it good advice to do open axle or L/S axle as well?
I want something that will work in snow & ice and allows me to pull more weight
Let me know anyone and thank you :)
