Do you mean what gears would be a good combination? That all depends on the size of the tires you want to run, and the size of the engine. There are tire size, gear ratio, charts on a lot of sites that sell either tires, and or gears.

If you get a detroit you will have to get the gears setup again. No big deal but just the way you have to go. If I were to do it I would invest in superiors new kit. They have a c clip eliminator setup and some beefier shafts then toss in any locker you want. Detroits are tried and true and will stand the test of time

limited slip is kind of useless.......a little better than being open, but still will not lock up both wheels when needed. A selectable locker is the best, but also more expensive. Especially when on the street. From what I have been told about Detroit lockers, they can be very unnerving when they unload, especially when in a precarious position on the rocks. I guess it is all relative to what you get used too.

Hell if it's already open, just throw a lock right in there and call it a day. Mine hasn't let me down in over 2 years of operation.

It really depends on where you live to determine what you can find them for. Out here in AZ you can pick them up for about 250 any day of the week. Other places might be different. All you need to look for is that it came from an Explorer or a Mountaineer. Those all have 31 spline shafts. The one's that came from the Rangers only had 28 spline I believe. Disk brakes or Drums, it really doesn't matter. Either way your braking will be improved over stock.

If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will tell me, but I believe that any year from an Explorer or a Mountaineer is a 31 spline 8.8.

Explorers are leaf sprung in the back. That is one of the cost associated with doing the swap is putting the correct hardware on the axle itself.

I have a larger throttle body and put a spacer on there then milled out the mantifold and got good results from that

you don't have to do anything to your intake to run a throttle body...it is just a spacer that spaces the throttle body i believe...and you don't have to do anything to your computer

How much experience do you have with a throttle body?

air intake, throttle body, computer module, headers, cat back exhaust, and if you have larger than stock tires then you could go with some new lower gears...and theres also high flow cats...thats a pretty good list of stuff right there that can help get more power
