Yes, but you may want to find a manual shift bw1350.
Manual shift transfer case will make the conversion much easier, electric shift requires several components, with wiring, to be added in the cab

If you got a bw1350/1354 with electric shift for free or paid $400 for a bw1350/1354 manual shift, the manual shift would end up costing you less in time and probably money as well.

Any bw1350/1354 manual shift(or electric) from 1983 to 2009 Ranger/BII/ Explorer will bolt to your current trans

if your ranger is a 98+ coil sprung truck you will need a frame from a torsion bar suspension ranger
