Ford 8.8 Rear end

I was wondering what other ford vehicles had the 8.8 rear end, also if those 8.8 from different vehicles would fit under a ranger?

Lots did. But most commonly used on a ranger is out of an explorer. It has the same bolt pattern and newer ones have disk breaks and can be gotten with a limited slip. I recently did this upgrade And it's bar none a best dollar for ar upgrade u can do

if its an expo its an 8.8, just have to choose if you want drums or disc's. even if you get drums you can convert it to disc later. all expo 8.8's are spring under so if you install with out flipping the perches or getting lift springs its around 5.5" of rear drop
