Default 2010 rear disc brakes parts on an older Ranger?

Not sure if this has been asked or attempted yet but I was at the local dealership today and looked at the rear axle on a 2010 Ranger 4X4 sport. I really want disc brakes in the rear. The axle looks the same except for the disc brake parts and I was wondering if one were to get those brake parts if they would bolt right up to an older Ranger axle? When I got part numbers and prices for the parts, I asked if he needed an axle code and he said the backing plate is the same on both sides and did not give a choice for different axles.

Would be interesting to get some parts from one and play around with them on a axle.

why not put an entire rear end in your truck? try looking in junkyards for a wrecked ranger with discs on the rear and put it in yours.

or if you just want discs and dont care what rear end it is (but still keep the same ratio), i would suggest getting your hands on a 9 inch. they are the best rear end ford ever made.IMO. and there are plenty of parts almost anywhere you go and every ratio you'll ever need. for a mostly stock ranger a 27 spline axle will be plenty strong. but of course 31 is stronger. if you want more info on 9 inches let me know.

or you can always check explorrers. many years of them have disc brakes on the back. (i know that a 1996 does)

Not worth the trouble go with Mustang GT or cobra brakes depending on your wheels parts are about 100x easier to find
