Default rear axel swap question

got a 97 2wd with a 3.73 open 7.5". a guy localy has a r6 code axel out of a 1995 4x4 and i was wondering if it would swap into my truck without having to change the driveshaft and have a abs light on because of the rabs??

find some specs online or call ford for driveshaft lenghths i guess and see which one is used for the r6. should just swap over if the years are roughly the same. the light deal, just make sure it has the same plug going to the top of the dif, mines always on because i went from a 8.8 stock to a 7.5 welded with 4:56's and it does not have the same plug on top so my light is always on (abs)

if it's out of a ranger, it'll bolt in.
