Give us a little more info, did it come out of a Ranger, Explorer, etc. Does it have disc brakes or a limited slip? Definitely change the diff fluid for starters.

if it came out of another ranger then its a direct bolt in.

you may encounter problems with your brake lines so you may want to spray then with PB blaster at the wheel cylinders the day before you start.
