I wouldn't, due to the eletronic shiznit that is involved. If you want disc's just get an exploder 31 spline

i talked to my dealership mechanic about the those disc brakes

he said they 2010 rear axle disc`s and the axle is just a direct swap

there is no electronic module for it .

just a simple adjustment bolt on the ABS block

Cheese_man, are you on drugs? Have you even looked at a 2010+ Ranger rear axle. I highly doubt it'll just "swap" over.

EDIT: Reference this photo I took. You tell me that it'll all just "swap" over. Did you know that 2010+ Ranger's has Ford's RSC? Your "dealership mechanic" probably doesn't either.

anyway..... both ways are still very viable. expo axle is nice for the stregth... plus you can rebuild it and have your pice of mind. setting the pads right and the pinion angle isnt hard at all... the mustang idea isnt bad either(i plan on doin this and doing a locker and then buying a 31 to build and flip the 28 to some jeeper for good $) its any easy swap and parts are plentiful. all depends on how you want to do it.

no! i do not take drugs

i simply asked the head mechanic if this axle was a direct swap , and he said yes it is

( and if anyone asks-- he is a 20+ years as head mechanic - he has been a mechanic for just over 40 years- so he has been around the block a few times )

he found a warranty issue with my old reg cab ranger that i never knew about -

just don't connect the stability control stuff. you might need new/modified parking brake cables.

off topic question...but does anyone know how much lower a truck would sit if you swapped in an expo axle and left it spring under?

I think it's like 4-5 inches. I'm probably wrong though.
