Default rear brake change

Can someone tell me what year Rangers started going with the bigger rear brakes?

That depends on the year/engine/model of the Ranger.

For many years prior to 2010, Rangers have come from the factory with either 9" or 10" rear drums depending on other equipment. The 9" are commonly found on 2WD reg cab with smaller engines. 4x4's, supercabs and/or 4.0's usually get the upgrade to 10". The complete 10" brakes are generally a direct bolt on replacement for the 9" (except the 10"ers from the hard to find 31-spline FX4/Level II axles - dfferent backing plate hole pattern).

Did the 2.3 and five speed ever come with the 10 inch brakes?

Is it true that all 2010 Rangers have rear disk brakes?

Yes 2010 Rangers have disc brakes only because of the roll stability feature they now have.
