Friends 88 Bronco

A really good friend of mine just did some work on a guys Bronco and that guy is giving him another Bronco as part of the payment. Here is where I have a few questions.

1)I looked under the rear and I saw that it didn't have a 9". What rear axle did they put in them?

2)What front axle is in it?

3)What transfer case?

4)What lift do you guys prefer?

I am sure there will be more ?'s about this truck as he starts getting into it. Thanks ahead for any help. Don't hate me because I drive a Chevy. I did't get it by choice.

Re: Friends 88 Bronco

Yes, rear is a Ford 8.8, front is a Dana 44 TTB. Transfer case is a Borg-Warner 1356.

I prefer Rancho or Skyjacker. Search some. Been discussed many times.

Re: Friends 88 Bronco

Did all these trucks come with the double front shocks? Are these Dana 44 TTB's a decent axle?

Re: Friends 88 Bronco

Not all came with the qaud shocks on the front, some just have a single shock at each corner.

The Dana 44 TTB is by far the strongest and most durable front independant axle ever built. It handles most off and on road obsticles fine with tires up to 35 inches. Anything over that is pushing the limits of the TTB

Re: Friends 88 Bronco

Thanks I appreciate all the info so far. That Dana looks much sturdier than the IFS GM has. Is there anything other than tire size & travel that would make me want to changeover to SFA. This truck will not be a crawler. Mostly mudder with limited trail exposure.

Re: Friends 88 Bronco

Yes, the 44TTB is by far the best built IFS. Not as many moving parts and things to break as the Chevy IFS.
