not in ford. its 3.73 or 4.10. I actually prefer 3.73 over 4.10. Mainly becuase im not running big ass tires, and my lifted ranger was turning 33's with 3.73's just fine. But for just a lil bigger than stock, 3.73 are nice, good grunt and good fuel on the highway.

as far as disc brakes go, exploder will be the best option. but will have some modification to make work. Spring perch and shock mounts are the biggies

there both good. in my '01 with 4.10s and 235's ive been getting around 17-18mpg. In my 96 with 3.73 and 235's I get around 17-18mpg! lol. BUt the 96 is a stick, 01 auto, maybe that makes a difference.. but, in my 01 im screaming at 3k rpm at 70. in my 96, its around 2400 at 70. so there ya go

door tag will have an axle code. and/or on the rear end there should be a tag. the tag should read like: 3L08 8.8 - 3.08 limited slip 8.8" or 3 08 7.5 - 3.08 open diff 7.5". or any combo of those.

its possible that the gears have been changed if your not the original owner. My plow truck read 3.55. When I changed them over to 3.73 I noticed junk yard markings on the ring gear I thought that was strange, I counted teeth after I pulled them out and the front and rear had been changed to 3.27. Thats a fine howdy do!
