Default Ď94 ranger 5.0 swap RWD

Hello, I just bought a 1994 ranger xl supercab and Iím looking to do the 5.0 explorer swap. My main question was whether it was possible to do the 5.0 swap and keep it rear wheel drive. Also which year range of explorers would work. I found a 2000 Ford Explorer 5.0 rwd but I wasnít sure if it would work. Sorry if this thread is already out there. I tried finding something similar before posting but nothing came up.

Any information helps a lot!

Thank you

I’ve looked on the ranger station and it seems most of the information is generalized for 1998 and up rangers. I haven’t seen anything pertaining to keeping it rear wheel drive.

Look again at that link I posted above. It covers your year and discusses 2WD just as much as it discusses 4WD. I'll post the link in segments below so that you can piece it back together in case the way that the forum shortens the URL breaks the link.
