Default ford ranger mini lighting

ok yall after so much time and research on what i really want or should do to my ranger i have decided to go with a eaton m90 supercharger and a limited slip diff. im pretty sure my auto trans can handle the power ima be putting to the rear (300 to 333hp) but any ideas to help beef up the trans. it just got rebuilt bout 10,000 miles ago so i think i will be good for now i WILL be doing this at the end of the year after i get back from texas, from follow up training. any help is much needed

Question: Do you have the 8.8" rear axle? If so, you could already be equipped with a limited-slip diff.

My '92, by the way, has a limited slip--didn't know it until I looked at the differential cover. If it's taller than it is wide (the cover), sounds like you would have a limited slip already.

if you wanna rebuild the tranny again get a firm shift kit, it will help. and as far as the truck we need more stats.

01 ranger edge. Extended cab. 2 wd. Auto trans. Rear axle code is 95. Meaning 3.55 gears and it is a 8.8 but it has a open diff. If I could find one with the axle code r5 I think that would work also. Need anymre info let me know

pull an explorer axle. you can get 3.73's or 4.10s with LS, also you can get aussie lockers for like a lil over 200bucks.
