8.8 disc rear

Which one will fit in my 91 ranger? if a coil rear will also fit, I have no problem welding on leaf perches.

none of them will drop right in...your going to be looking for an explorer rear end, not sure if your 4x4 but if you are match the gears or you will break somthing real quick. to make an expo fit you will have to convert the axle by turing it into a spring over configuration insead of a sping under(factory)...to do this you will have to cut the spring pearches and place them on top of the axle... also watch your pinion angle, try to match whats there now. also you will have to relocate the shock tabs.

Ya on our F150 board you ask a question someone will just answer or post a link. It actually makes it easier for the person asking.
