Getting another tranny wouldn't pain me, since the plastic slave cylinder is the weak spot in the Ranger manual (already had it replaced once), and I have a syncro in 4th starting to fail.
I believe the tranny is a M5OD-R2 - basically a beefier version of what our trucks have.

I don't have the list with me atm, but I believe it uses a 5.0 F150 clutch kit and the same slave/master that our trucks have.

Not sure what you need to do for the driveshaft, never thought about that to research, but it may be worthwhile to have a custom one built anyways.
