Default 8.8 question

the expo 8.8 should just bolt right up right? will i also need custom drive lines with the 5.0 swap or will the expo drive line work on my truck?

yep, if you want a 5" drop. seeing how you have a 4x4, you will have to weld new spring perches to the axle. can't tell you about the drive shafts

yes, the ex axles mount spring under, rangers mount spring over. so if you put the ex axle in, it will be spring under, giving you a drop. new perches will let you do spring over and stay at stock height.
