My credo
I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
Np144 is found in AWD Durangos.

I have never seen an '02 Explorer 4 dr with manual - not saying they don't exist, I've just never seen one. Would right up there with the 3.0 T-5 bell housing on unicorn scale.
I have a '02 Explorer 2 dr on driveway, but it has BW1354.​
Just for reference the M5OD R-2 tail housing has 1 more bolt than M5OD R-1, so I don't believe they swap.
If I was real industrious, I could get you pictures as both are in garage, but they are kinda buried, so there would be some garage cleaning involved. And if I start that, the wife would want the job finished.​
The ‘02 Explorer 4door came with the M5OD-R4. It was a 1 year thing, used a dual mass flywheel with a different spline count input shaft from the R1, and I’ve never actually seen one... IIRC, They only made about 2300 of them.

Guess my options are custom r2 spline in r1 case and re drill 4404 or the ole Dana 28 from Aerostar. Dana 28 sounds easier
