Probably not. I would go for an eighties two wheel drive S-10.

The Explorer rear end has a lot of pinion offset. You would need to shorten one side to center the pinion better. I like the smooth look of the 9 inch Ford and the 8 3/4 Mopar. They just look cleaner from the back. The quick change rear ends have a race look to them. You may need to narrow just about any rear end that you choose except the S10 rear end, which isn't very strong and doesn't have a very good look to it in my opinion.
