3.73 swap 4.88 issues

Hey folks I have help a bud of mine do the bodylift and gear swap tonight, I went from 3.73 to 4.88, I notice when I start the ranger up, and put it in gear and give it some gas, It Kicks! and does the same in every gear. Could someone tell me what the problem is as I had the gear oil changed out tonight with (Ford Motorcraft 75-140 full synthetic) ?

Also the hurst shifter that I put in a month ago is now sitting much lower in the ranger, what can I do about this? how can I get that height and some back again? Thanks!

Also my rear bumper is not lining up right, well it's on but without those long stock security brackets on each side. for some reason my bud say they wont line up right, any ideas? thanks
