i saw it on car-part while looking for my rear, but i've never heard/seen one before, I think we would know about them if you know what I mean...it would be a VERY common swap.

I was thinking that too, but I just figured they were really rare. If you look here under the Ranger section it lists the 4.56 http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/Axles.html

The only axle I have been able to find in Florida that will fit and has 4.56's in it is a Ford 9" that's been narrowed and was on a guys Ranger on Chucks Trucks but he wants like $1000 for it lol. I forgot to tell you, the same guy is also selling 6" lift leafs. Look on the forum, he's got like 1000 replies of him bumping it.

yea i talked to him. i offered him 100 less than he is asking for his leafs, i thought he is asking too much and he just straight up said no. Didn't want to counter offer me or anything.

Just get an 8.8 open with 3.73 and take it straight to my guy at transmission dr, he will do it for 300. just go all out and buy a nice diff cover, new gears and rebuild kit. bring the axle in the bed of your truck and drop it off...gotta pay to play, just remember that :)

Yea, it wouldn't hurt to just get a rear end and throw it in, your talking a couple hundred versus a thousand or more. New tires are at least 160-180 each, then gears are 300+ and 300+ for install...not including anything else...

You should be able to get an expo rear end for about 200, 300 tops

How about a locker to go with them gears, so it wouldn't go one wheel. You could score an FX4 Level 2 axle if lucky. :)
