Try to find a 1998 F150 with 4WD and snatch the T case off of it. It should bolt right in if I'm not mistaken.

I would have figured the ranger and explorer used the same trans and transfercase...

----------

Thinking about it...i dont think they used the 5.0 and the 4.6L replaced it in 1996.

That's the beauty about the ranger. You can use F150, Mustang, and explorer parts on it. They basicly still use the same rear end housing on all of the models really, and most explorer parts are bolt on or can be modified to fit. Same deal with the F150 really. The last year for the 5.0 was 2001 used in the explorer. They used it from 1999 till 2001. F150's started using the 4.6 L aorund the same time the mustangs did, 1996.

There you go. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they just bolted right in without having to do any modifying period.

Usually alot of people end up having some new ones made for their paticular set up. I gave you some wrong information pal. That's my fault there because I misread your post. I should've read it a little better than I did.

98~2001 Ex 5.0 VSS source is the rear axle ABS sensor.
