The drive shaft that is used in Ford Ranger trucks used a two-piece or single tube. The 2WD and 4WD lengths were not the same. There are different measurements for these assemblies. The materials utilized to construct the shafts were aluminum and steel. Most of what you can find in aftermarket inventory is a cheaper aluminum polymer. Powertrain Guys has a used drive shaft for Ford Ranger trucks ready to ship.
Front and Rear Shaft
The transmission size and type of motor will always determine the measurement of the shaft. From 1983 to 1998, Ford Motor Company installed only one type of assembly for the front and the rear. This was locked together at the u joint. The flange could pop open causing a break in the assembly. The switch was made to a one piece unit after many years of heartache by truck owners.
Late model 2002 and up pickups have a 38.50 inch front shaft design plus the rear linkage. The precise measurements must be taken in order to make sure things fit well. Local fabrication shops in some cities have retooling machines that can lengthen or shorten the tube. Truck owners who want to avoid this extra work just buy a used Ranger drive shaft to install.
Drive Shaft Warranty
The decision to go with an original part will pay off in the long run. Installing a part that was not meant originally for your truck is a disaster waiting to happen. Why save a couple of bucks on a weak shaft? A pull out from a junk yard is the best way to match the right Spicer component. PTG has hundreds of yards that we contract with daily.
