  1. Wanted Passenger Side Rear Door (4 Door)

  2. Handling issues....

    I have a 93 Ranger 2.3l 5-speed manual with a stock 7.5 open diff and 3.45 gears. Truck has for a long time been prone to spinning the inside wheel in a semi-sharp to sharp turn (90deg) with stock size tires. Now running 30" tires and truck handles in the rain kinda like it's snow. Taking a...
  3. 2001 Ranger Edge - Rear Tire Width

    Hey, guys! First post here, been poking around for a few weeks now and figured I'd start the beginning of asking all kinds of questions. So as it says, I have a 2001 Ranger Edge and I'm wondering how wide of a back tire I can get on it, but it's a little bit more loaded of a question than that...
  4. How easy is it to swap to a new axle for repair

    What I have: 1992 Ford ranger stock 4 cylinder Rear diff: 3.73 ratio, 7.5”, 2WD It has bad pinion bearings and I either need to put in new bearings or put a new axle in.

  5. Metallic screeching sound from back end

    Hi all, my truck is making a really aweful metallic screeching sound when I first drive in the morning or after sitting for an hour or more. It's not a belt or brakes I don't think because 1. It doesn't do it when stationary and 2. It only screeches for about the first 30 seconds of driving away...
  6. Replacement Rear

    So I'm doing a rear swap after mine decided to take a crap and leave everything in shreds. I can get a rear from the yard for $90 but I wanted to make sure on a couple things before I pick one up. I have a 99 ranger with a R7 rear in it. Two questions: 1. R7 is a 8.8, 4.10 rear with the...
  7. Ford Ranger FX4 Axle

    So my current 8.8 axle is having symptoms of differential bearings going bad. It makes a bunch of noise and I have to give my truck more gas to keep it moving... Anyways, I am going to swap in another axle because rebuilding the current differential is extremely expensive. I have looked into...

  9. Ford 7.5" to 8.8" swap

    Hey, so I think I know my answer to this, but I got a Ford 8.8" axle out of a 01 ranger 4x4. I wanted to swap it into a 1997 ford ranger 2wd. Is there any kind of modifications I need to do to the 8.8 or should it just bolt straight in? I'm pretty sure it should bolt in but I understand the 4x4...
  10. 6x9 Speaker Install Doors and Rear

    So my grandpa insisted on buying me some 6x9 speakers for my truck and I couldn't convince him otherwise so I figured I would make them work. I saw several threads on 6x9 speakers, but I thought I would show everyone my photos/experience on my 94 ford ranger standard cab. For the wiring, I just...
  11. changing 8.8 open diff to posi

    What's up guys. My '95 XLT Super has an open diff 8.8 and I'm considering completely redoing the drivetrain. Engine is either going to be a 302 or a 351 with gt40 heads. What I'm trying to figure out is if it would be easier to swap internals in the diff or if I should just go find an explorer...

  13. 98 B4000 Looking for rear wheel opening plastic trim

  14. Single Rear Catalytic Converter for a 1998 3.0L - where to buy?

    Hi, My '98 XLT 3.0l appears to have three catalytic converters - 1 in each downpipe, and one immediately behind where the two downpipes join. Under the hood it says this is California emissions. The flange at the rear of the rear cat has disintegrated, and I doubt it will last through the...
