Turn off the caps for one. I would just go grab a junkyard axle unless you think you can handle a solid axle swap.

if you want to cheap it out then fix the TTB (twin traction beam).

this will be much cheaper then doing a axle swap.

you can get aftermarket Warn hubs and all the other parts are not expensive.

not sure as to the explorer swap? the ranger and explorer used the exact same axle and suspension.

solid axle swap is gonna cost you at least a grand and this is if you can weld and have access to steel and tools to make this swap work
