EDIT: To save you reading, what year models am I interchangeable with as far as Axles on explorers and rangers? 2004 xlt. from when to when?
So I am going to Pick and Pull tomorrow to see if I can grab an Explorer rear axle for my truck. I was originally going to swap the diff in my truck but after a ton of research and some perswasion by members I am just going to swap the axles. My question is (not sure if this is somewhere on here and I missed it) What years of Rangers and Explorers are compatible with my 2004 xlt 2wd? If I can find a ranger axle with a LSD that would be great (less modification) but an explorer will do just fine. SO where years will fit? 2004 xlt 3.0 2wd fits with ???
2004 Ford Ranger 3.0 4x2
3"BL- 3" Doetsch Spindles - 2" Coil spacers - Blocks & Shackles
8.8 Explorer Axle w/ LSD, 4.88s
35x12.5R15 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 on 15x10 Cragar D windows
