96 Ford ranger V8 swap

Asked by Mar 28, 2017 at 04:20 PM about the 1996 Ford Ranger

Question type: Car Customization

So I'm trying to understand if the rear axle, of a
1996 Ford ranger originally a 2.3L 5 speed, can
handle the swap of a stock carbed 302 with a T5
transmission.

It's a project me and my friend has taken on we
have everything planned and nearly all the l parts
and everything. But he thinks the stock rear end
can handle the swap, and I personally think we
should throw a 5.0 fox body rear end on it before
he shreds his div in half.
