Are you sure you have a 7.5 in a later model Ranger? What ratio you have now? Need this info for baseline benchmarking.

i would get a detroit locker, that will get you thru some nasty ruts. Factory limited slips are garbage so your better off getting a locker.

Auburn puts out a nice one, or look into a selectable if you have the funds, like an arb or ox locker. But if you have a 7.5 don't waste your money, buy an 8.8 to build up so you don't break the 7.5 you just dumped money into.
