I think the bitch you have to research is the 4x4 cross brace is different than the 2x.In other words this stuff won't bolt into your truck as I understand it.

Either swap the frame crossmember for one from a 4WD frame, or be prepared to do some serious fabbing and cutting on your existing one in order to get the axle brackets mounted.

I'd use a D44 straight axle from a Jeep Wagoneer or a F-150 (cut down) if converting a 2WD Ranger to 4WD.
The trans & t-case will work fine provided it's for the same engine as yours however.
