my buddy has a 97 ranger and we recently blew up the rear differential. We got a complete rear end outa a junk yard for 150 bucks but we know that its not gonna last to long whats the recomendation on a possible rear end switch. Not to much $ but i think we can afford probably $750. Any recomendations?

Like Jerry said. We threw an explorer axle on a 2000 Ranger, and it wasnt a major overhaul. The main thing is welding on new spring pads, getting larger u-bolts and corresponding spring backing plates, and welding on new shock mounts. Plus the explorer axle is a little wider, so that and disk brakes makes it worth it.
