I believe it should as bolt patterns are the same, but you might need bigger rims if you have the stock 14"s still

I started with a cut off wheel on an angle grinder, finished up with a sawzall...it was faster. Then cleaned things up with the cut off wheel to give it a smooth finish.

Well as others have stated it would take a long time to find all of the useful information in the tread.
So I guess I will just ask the question. I have a 84 Ranger that has a 28 spline rear end and I am guessing that this swap will work since it is a 28 spline?
Thanks
jim,

Hello.

I know this thread is years old, but I still plan on doing this. When I search for caliper brackets, all I get is the bracket that is supposed to come with the caliper. Is the mounting bracket (the one to modify) a dealer only part?
