Like i've always said from the get-go...upgrade to an 8.8", then gear the truck. I'd be scared to see the pinion gear on a 7.5" 4.56 or even worse, 4.88. Right now you've got a 28spline 7.5" axle. Your front axle should be a D35. is the cheapest place I've found quality gears.... don't skimp on gears, you'll pay for it if you do.

pick up an explorer rear. 8.8 rear,disk brakes an most have traction loc an youll get 31 spline. only thing youll have to put flip brackets so it can be used as a under spring set up like the ranger.
