Default Posi rearend questions

So i was given 96 ranger 2wd as payment for a bunch of work i did. anyways i know almost nothing about rangers but i really want to make it in to a desert truck and was wondering what rearends are lsd? so far i haven't heard anything saying that ford has put out an open diff in any of there trucks. if that is true i am sold on rangers forever!! so do i need to get a rear axle or am i set with what i've got?

Thanks
Matt

there will be a tag on one of the diff bolts that will tell you if you have a ls or not. There will be an L between some #s...I am sure STL will chime in with a chart, i think there is also a way to check looking at the door jamb sticker...but yes Ford has put open diffs in most of their trucks...I have 2 open diffs. If you do not have an l/s (posi) you can get one and put it in or do an axle swap.

Look for a sticker that has all sorts of crazy numbers and stuff on one of the driver side doors and refer to this chart ====> http://www.fordrangerforum.com/drive...xle-codes.html <==== to find out what kind of rear axle you have.

axle tag says 4L10 for a LS and 4 10 for an open. pretty easy to tell or you could be really lazy and brake stand it one line is open two lines is LSD
