97\' Ford Ranger Rear-End

I am considering building my 2 wheel drive 97' Ranger into a Pre-Runner type of truck. One way I want to go of doing this is I want to
beef up my rear-end and put in a ford 9inch with 4:10 gears. I would also like to add a limited slip diff. Does anyone know of any
companies that sell and rebuild new and used rear-ends to customer specifications.

Spend your money on the best suspension you can buy (have made) first. the reason i say this is bucause you may alter the rear suspension so much that the axle will need to be altered......you wouldnt want to get an expensive rear built and then have to have it altered again to work with the best suspension. also, if you have a four banger... dont worry about the rear! i have some friends that run 5.0's (yes, it will shoehorn into your engine compartment) with a "beefed" stock axle.. 410 gears and a locker are MANDATORY. get a detroit locker if you only have two-wheel drive.. dont wast money on a "limited slip" unles you are going to drive 90% on the street. the limited slip has no bad manners on the street and is better than nothing off-road, but it will NOT push the truck forward if you get one of the rears in the air. the detroit locker clunks around corners and chirps tires on the street but WILL push the truck if you get one wheel in the air. good luck.... also, Currie is THE best!!
