5 lug swap

I have seen where its said u can use the axles from a ranger for a fox. Just needed to know if the axles are the same length or needed to be cut down to fit?

U can use the ranger axles but both from the same side. There was just a recent thread on it. You maybe able to find it a few pages back.

They are the right length if you use the proper side.
