If you're after an actual locker of some sort, the Aussie Locker or LockRight might be what you're looking for. It simply replaces the spider gears in your stock open diff carrier.

If you'd rather have a limited slip (aka "Posi"), swapping the entire axle for a salvage yard axle with a factory L/S is generally the easiest route (you could install a L/S diff into your existing axle too, though this usually requires messing with the gear setup, which is pretty tedious work).

A spool basically replaces the spiders and locks up both wheels so they always turn at the same speed. Some people "lincoln lock" up the spider by sinkiing some welding rod into the spiders and lock them up that way, but if you're looking to drag, get a spool. If your Bronco has an 8.8" axle it will fit but requires a bit of modification to the axle to accept the Ranger's springs and shocks.
