M5OD R2 transmission

Does anyone know if the heavy dudy variant M5OD R2 transmission (that is most commonly found in the f-150) works in the Ranger? I use my ranger for plowing and I would like to upgrade the drive train without spending 3-400 on a heavy duty off road clutch.

Nope. Won't bolt up. Bellhouse pattern is different

If you did a 5.0l V8 swap it would work.

But as said above the M5OD R1 and R2 have integrated bell housings and Ford never had an R2 with a 4.0l, so no bolt pattern match up
