It should bolt right up, except the exploder axle has the leaf sping under the axle, whereas the ranger's is spring over. So if you want the back lower it'll bolt right up, or you'll have to reweld the spring perches on top of the axle

Well since you're lowering it you're set. Like I said, it should bolt right up. I think it sticks out like 3/4 farther on each side though

Nah, I'm positive it's in the exact same spot, just under the axle instead of over it. There's a writeup somewhere
