Default will trac-lok fit my ranger?

Hey guys,
I'm new to this site. I'm sick of getting stuck in 2 inches of snow in my 04 ranger. I was thinking about getting ahold of a trac-lok from a v6 mustang with a 7.5in rear end. Does my ranger (2x4 w/3.73 7.5 in) have 28 spline axles? Would a trac lok fit? How well do they work? Is it worth the 200$?

what kind of engine are you runnin?

Your 7.5 does have 28, the traction lock put in the FX4 edition is the only one I know that has 31... (I'm sure that others will come and correct me if I'm wrong on that)

Anythin will work if you're willing to modify it... Just do yourself a favor and look for a 8.8 with a minimum of 3.73 LS, that way you won't regret your 7.5 purchase later if you decide to extensively upgrade your engine tranny...

x2

If you are going to put in the time, money, and energy to swap them out you might as well put in the 8.8
