Hey guys/gals.

I went ahead and read the tech library posting about swapping a 7.5 for a 8.8.
But just to make doubly sure I am understanding right. Will a 8.8 from a 2007 ford ranger FX4 fit in my 2002 Ford ranger edge? I have a auto,3.0L,2wd.


From what I understand from the article is that they will switch over completely except for the U-bolts and the plates.

Thanks ahead of time.

That is only if it's from a FX4-Level II (31-spline Torsen axle). If it's just a plain FX4 (Off-Road) model, it's a direct bolt-in swap.
