    i have a 1996 explorer with the 4R55E tranny. i was wondering what it will take to put in a 5R55E tranny. will it be a direct bolt in or will i need to do some adjustments? is the bellhousing pattern the same? one more thing, the 4r is 4 speed auto and the 5r is 5 speed auto. problem?

    First I would just like to say how impressed I am with the knowledge you all have about Explorers, and Rangers. I just joined the site, and could sit all day reading the how to threads, etc... I'm not real informed about the Ex I drive and I am curious about the type of trans, gears, and what it all means. Going by what you have posted, my '93 Ex has the BW 1354 t-case, 8.8" (41) open diff with 3.27 gears, and a dana 35 in front.
    The real reason I'm interested is I want to upgrade things a bit in the future. I've driven the same truck for 13 yrs mostly stock, and feel it is about time I BEEF it up a little! I'm thinking of a moderate lift of 4", bigger wheels and tires, and if needed different gearing and other engine mods.
    Since I don't go off road alot YET, I would want it to still be streetable. I guess one of my questions would be....do these changes I'm thinking about making, make the truck really rough driving on the road, and hard to keep balanced, as far as tires and front end goes?
    18 yr old, trapped in a 47 yr old body, looking for a positive change!!
    Still going strong after over 301K on the same engine, no work!

    Wow !! 301K Keep the Oil changed and full and they run forever.
    Ok I have the A4LD and I wish to replace it with a newer model. that my transfer case and Enginewill bolt up to.. A no 4X4 would be cheaper out at the Salvage Yard ,that I could bolt up. What years and model could I use.. I read everything I could find .

    ..it is controlled by either an electronic shift motor or a gem module...it has an electromechanical clutch to shift the front driveshafts...externally it looks like the 1354 but internally is the difference...
    ...i would look at the rebuild threads of these 2 t/c's to see what you could find, unless one of the tranny guru's show up...sorry, that's all i got...:D
