thanks for the tip. Wish I wouldve known about this before i got my new clutch!
Big mistake doing the clutch and not the slave. Especially on a 4.0. My slave was shot on my 2.5L at 130k.

Bump.
I didn't wanna make a new thread to ask this, which trans is in my 08? M5ODR1, M5ODR1HD, or M5ODR2?
Also do these three trans use the same shifter or are they all different?

Ok, next question. Is the shifter universal between all 3? Would I be able to use one from a 3rd gen?

No. The R2 is a larger transmission used in certain F-series and full size Broncos. It uses a much taller, angled stick and a different shifter stub in the transmission. This shifter probably wouldn't be a good choice in a Ranger.

The R1 has been used in Rangers and other smaller Ford trucks for many years. The slightly beefed up R1HD was introduced in the 2001 model year for use with the more powerful 4.0L SOHC in Rangers and Sport Tracs. The 2001+ 2.3, 2.5 and 3.0 continued to use the R1.

I'm not sure of the exact year but Ford changed the orientation of the wedge bolt in the Ranger/Explorer R1 sometime in the mid-to-late 90's. Earlier had a fore/aft bolt, the later bolts went crossways. Because of this change, you can't just interchange early and late sticks. You MIGHT be able to swap the shifter AND the shifter stub to make it work though.

Shifters from R1's and/or R1HD's of the same year group should always be directly interchangeable.
