I had my '97 Ranger converted in 2004 and yes, you need a conversion kit. Well, I did anyway. The lockout hub kit was $228 and the conversion kit was $75. Keep in mind those were 2004 costs. I was told that to put the automatics back in would cost a lot of money and really wasn't worth it, unless you really don't want to get out an lock the hubs.
