It is not, it is out of the newer Fords, and has the metric pattern.

I would still like to put this under my truck, but I'm not sure if there is some type of conversion to 5x5.5.............maybe wheel spacers/adaptors, new axles, ect.........

Does anybody have any ideas?
What was the axle out of?

Full size trucks from 1980-1996 used the 8.8 with 5x5.5 bolt pattern. Rangers/Explorers use the 8.8 with 5x4.5 bolt pattern.

*edit: Just saw it was a newer truck axle - 5x135mm
