well if you wanna save yourself some money convert your auto locking hubs to manual b/c other wise you are looking at tons of cash every time ur autolocking hubs break and the manual ones are stronger. as far as it being stuck in 4x4 i've never had that problem so i dunno about that.

what about swaping out the front rear diffs for something stronger ? or even just the front and match up the gears, say a solid axle swap ?

i went through countless auto hubs on the old bronco II at the time couldnt afford the $500+ warn conversion auto hubs were cheap from the wreckers $40 for 2 of them and then i snaped a halfshaft and it never did get fixed

if you go to a shop and ask them to do a SAS to a ranger your looking at $6000-10000 to have it done all and all.
