CLICK HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

basically, the 7.5 is Ford's weaker smaller differential. The 8.8 is the best on the Rangers. The 8.8 comes in three different setups. It will come in an open like mine (I have 4.10 geared open 8.8 diff). In the FX4s they come with l/s, but it is Ford's L/s model. The FX4 Level IIs come with Torsen's limited slip differential.

The main advantage of a limited slip differential is shown by considering the case of a standard (or "open") differential where one wheel has no contact with the ground at all. In such a case, the contacting wheel will remain stationary, and the non-contacting wheel will rotate freely—the torque transmitted will be equal at both wheels, but will not exceed the threshold of torque needed to move the vehicle, and thus the vehicle will remain stationary. In everyday use on typical roads, such a situation is very unlikely, and so a normal differential suffices. For more demanding use, such as driving in mud, off-road, or for high performance vehicles, such a state of affairs is undesirable, and the LSD can be employed to deal with it. By limiting the angular velocity difference between a pair of driven wheels, useful torque can be transmitted as long as there is some traction available on at least one of the wheels.

so if i was to put a new open 8.8 with 4.10 gears will i have to change the gears in my transfer case and front end so they would all mesh together

Yes you will need the same size gear ratio in the front as the back.
