if it isnt a limited slip unit i would use your carrier, when i had my '03 ranger i put a mustang 8.8 LS carrier in it with my 4.10s from the ranger and shimmed it up made for some fun in the mud and snow cause it was an open carrier at first

The carrier will swap right over, but if it's not a trac-lok carrier then you will not be able to just swap the trac-lok into the ranger carrier, since the trac-lok and open differential use a slightly different carrier design. It really won't be any more work just to put the ranger gears onto the mustang carrier though, you're gonna have to swap the pinion gear and do the entire setup process either way.
