use a hub bearing off of a 98 ranger

keep in mind, you transfer case does not have an electronic clutch in it like <2000 trucks do, if you switch the transfer case into 4x4 with the hubs unlocked, there is no clutch or synchronizer ring top bring the front driveshaft up to speed...it will just slam in...and bad things will happen

i dont blame you. i have AVM's on my truck too, i was just reminding you about the clutch....also, make sure your 07 and the 98 have the same ABS connector (make sure you order wheel bearings for a 98 or 99 4.0 with 4WABS) or you will have to swap the sensors....when you remove them both youll have to count the number of teeth on the reluctor ring and make sure both sensors are the same

actually my ranger is automatic
but i understand your info
it is the same with jeep cj`s with manual hubs, you have to lock the front hubs before you engage the transfer case

I am referring to the clutch in the transfer case. the PVH rangers have a clutch in the t-case and when you select 4x4, the clutch energizes bringing the front driveshaft up to speed before the PVH hubs are locked in and the shift motor is shifted into 4x4

hmm. thanks , that is interesting , i was not aware that ford ranger transfer cases had that feature

i am used to the old style shift fork / sliding collar setup

that explains why a lot jeep tj owners are switching back the old stlye dana 30 axles with manual hubs as well
