    Is it to much power for it? I mean it's only a extra 40hp or something right? :rolleyes:

    This would be for a older ranger '85 7.5 and a 96 4.0

    I think it should be fine. My friend has a V-6 mustang that came 190 hp stock and has a 7.5 axle in it.

    I'd probably be ok, i wouldnt wheel it. though you're going to have to convert from disc to drum which is a step back...

    Stic, you can have the 8.8 that Felix is holding for me. :) This is the project you wanted it for, I take it. Your sister's truck? All I ask is you put up a pic like we all wanted! ;) :D

    He still has it, it's taking up space in his garage. I don't know about L/S or not. Get ahold of him. :thumbsup:

    I don't know when I would get to it. So that's why I figured you could get his axle like you originally wanted. You're ready, i'm not, there will be other 8.8's coming along...

    I know put it's to much work to throw it the ranger I'm doing. It's basicly stock :rolleyes: If I was going to do something else with the truck I would say other wise. I didn't relize that the Ex axle was wider originaly :(

    But thanks Bill
