yea i seen two for about $25 shipped so i think i will just order one. did yours ever go bad?

While you have them out, you might as well switch them out for AVM hubs.

Awesome, glad ya got the switch working and no, in my sports my 4wheel switches never went bad unless previous owners had to replace them, I don't think they're too prone to going bad. Those autohubs you got in your ranger are a PITA! They are too well known to go out. I like the 95+ models with those diff front ends the autohubs last longer (thinking of making mine a live axle though out a 97+ex or 00+ranger or w/e year they did that). Unless you can rebuild your autohubs your better option instead of buying new autohubs would be to put some WARNS in that baby.

yea i like the auto hubs, not sure what the diff is between 94 & 95 but i read on an explorer forum that a guy cleaned his with atf and they work perfect so thats my prodject for this weekend. my friend that i bought the truck from isnt mechanical and he said when he did the front brakes the hub didnt fit on right so he basically forced it all on lol. so hopefully its something stupid. i am thinking i got a loose connection somewhere tho because i just pulled the switch apart and put it back in and everything works

well that isn't good if he just forced it, he shoulda rotated it until it slid on right. He more than likely damaged it doing that but as for them going bad, there is some fer plastic piece in there that makes them go out, and I too am not sure of the front axle differences except for the 95 and 96 explorers have a CAD (center axle disconnect) but as far as autohubs I don't know the difference much but the hubs are smaller and don't stick outta the wheel by much.

i would like to do a solid axle swap before doin a lift but i gotta save for that. it sucks i had a sport trac i flipped over and the insurance was gonna give it to me for free but i had no where to put it and that would have made the perfect donar car for the rear axle and seats and dash and everything.
