Default What is differential in my truck?

My truck is an 04 Ranger Edge Super Cab 2wd with the 3.0. I was wondering if yall might can tell me which differential I have under my truck. Sorta reminds me of the Rustang 8.8 but I don't think it's that big. Are there any performance upgrades available? Posi? Locker? I HATE Aburns so we'll get that outta the way now. Thanks for any help.

Thank yall very much. It has a code 97, which according to that chart is an open 4.10 gearset. I knew that whatever it was was an open carrier because I've had it in the air rotating the tires. It's nice to know it's an 8.8. That's a pretty popular and fairly strong rear axle.

Yes, I saw that in your sig. So, I am guessing that this has a 28 spline axle. Would that be right?

yep unless you have a FX4 level II, it is 28 spline

i have the same carrier/axle, i have not seen a hindrance at all, the truck has taken everything I have threw at it. Even had it in a ditch with only diagonal wheels touching and it got out fine. But then again, never drove a ranger with the L/S or the Torsen L/S

Wish mine would have came with the 4.10 stock. Would have saved the trouble of swapping axles.
