Honestly, I'd still encourage you to look into the Explorer V8 swap. A lot less money and more power.

I don't want to comment on any price you should pay for the truck (it always turns into a flaming DB session). However timkin hubs are $115 each. Transfer case motor is $70. Cv shaft $50. 4wd module $150. Basically it can all be fixed at a reasonable cost.

Fair enough. It's definitely going to require pulling engine, trans, etc and moving pieces over to match it all up. The good news is that at the end of the day you're driving an entirely 'stock' truck, except that it's a stock Ford Explorer drivetrain in a Ranger. The only non factory part is the rear driveshaft (and somebody might be able to point you to a factory part that would fit).

Here's more info if you're curious:

I think I am set to a 2007 with 73k auto 4x4 extended cab 2 door from one owner who can't drive no more.
Truck in excellent condition with the 4.0l , the only thing bothering me about the truck it has no cruise control even though it is an xlt ,
Isn't that odd ?
