Recently got a 9' from a 1980 ford f-100. Wondering what the best/cheapest third member to get for it for 4.0 SOHC ford ranger. Also what size axles to get 31 or 35. Thanks Max

I’m not sure it’s relevant but I ran 33’s with a 2.5 4 cylinder ranger and stock 3.73 rear gears. It ran fine.

just throwing it out there....i put used 28spline stock axles in my truck with a detroit, twisted the splines off in about 500miles (50/50 dirt/street) with a 3.4 v6, 5spd and 33s

A manual trans is going to be way harder on driveline components than an auto and depends how it is driven
