The Mustang disk conversion doesn't work on a 31 spline but if it is off an expo it already has disk and the expo disk set should be a bolt on to a 31 spline ranger rear.

Are you sure it was 31 spline? You can't tell by the axle code you have to measure the diameter of the tube.

Someone correct me if I have overlooked a detail.

I thought al level 2's had the 31 spline axle? unless it got swapped out.
I have the tag but its illegible.
Anyway, the thing looked like it sat in some brine for a while, it had like 1/8 deep pitting on the tubes.
Plus the spring bolts and driveshaft bolts wre so rusty they weren't hexagonal anymore. and you can't use a grinder or torch at that jy, just a
sawzall. I was allready running late too. So it wasn't worth it.
( or at least that's what I tell myself lol, so i don't kick myself for leaving a surprise 31 slpline axle untouched:ermm:)

After work today I removed the necessary push pins to loosen the rear & side panel interior trim panels & removed all but the top 3 nuts holding in the rear sliding window. I am going to remove the remaining nuts tomorrow & install the replacement rear slider. The glass on the rear slider winmdow that is in my Ranger has many pit marks in the glass & the replacement is like new. Here is what I have done so far.

Mike I truly believe you are our most underestimated member, you have done awesome things to your truck.

I'm wrestling with all 3 of mine trying to make decisions on which comes first. Prioritizing becomes an issue when your love for rangers out weigh your wallet!

Thank you Jim. Today I removed the old rear slider with the pitted glass & installed the new/used one. I am going to make a "how to" for the removal & replacement of the rear glass.
