swapping early 90's explorer parts into 93 ranger

soo... a friend across the road has an expo that he's scrapping (he's "thinking" about keeping it, but the family friend he's living with wants him to get rid of it) i was gonna steal some much needed parts for my 93 ranger..

here's what im grabbing so far:

-front axle shaft u-joints (both sides)
-water pump (its got the 4.0L in it too)
-rear leaf springs

already grabbed the wipers mine were shot. but what else should i grab?? the only thing wrong with the expo is reverse is blown in it the rest of it works. might grab the steel rims for winter. umm... what else??? i was told that it has an 8.8 rear end in it by a guy that knows ford's and what he's talking about, (the guy has a lifted 93-95 ranger and a 2002 F-350 crewcab dually 1 ton). hopefully my friend is around tomorrow and i should grab the parts then.

what about the ball joints?? are they the same?? oh and the expo has no brakes.. i could grab the whole truck and bring it over here and strip it, like we have the room, but its just a matter of being "allowed" to by my parents and my mom isnt going for it.. haha ya i live with my parents.. let me know what else i should grab..
