From what I can tell the driveline and the ratios are different from a stick to an automatic, but it should bolt up without too much modifying.

how much modifying would i have to do

Wow, the site must be having a problem, I barely got back on, driveline will have to be modified, spring pad locations might have to be changed, and of course the speedometer will need recalabrated to match the new ratios, but that should be it, not too bad for a differential swap. I put a Ford 9 inch in a ranger once, and that was a hassle, tube and axle length, spring perches, brakes, driveline, after it was done I said nope not again.

thank you for your help

Just pointing out that if this is a 4X4, since it wasn't mentioned, the front and rear differentials gear ratio have to match.
