What axle is under the ford ranger? Doesn't it use the 8.8 axle also?

Yes it does, at least on 4x4's. In fact, I believe you can use the axle shafts and drums to convert a 5.0 Mustang to 5-bolt.

The front may be a Dana 35.That would be on the TTB's. They have aluminum cases when thy went to torsion bars.

The rangers have 7.5 axle. you can use these on the 79-93 fox stangs. you have to use two left side axles.

Rangers use both 7.5 and 8.8's depending on engine and year, etc... they are quite narrow but have an offset pinion, won't work for an early Mustang if thats whatcha mean?
but you can narrow one further by using 2 right side axles,or widen it by using 2 left axles and making the housing width match.

Actually I am looking for an 8.8 for a non-Ford product. My Jeep. My mustang is still in North Dakota and the truck has bad main bearings and will be rebuilt later in the year, and I am selling the bronco (I think).

To many cars and not enough time to enjoy them.
