What came with 8.8s??

I'm looking at my axle swap choices, and the 8.8 is an option, but I'm not sure what they came in and what the bolt pattern would be? If I'm checking out boneyards what should I be looking for?

I believe the '97 up Explorer's are the easiest to swap in. They should have 28 spline axleshafts and a 5 lug bolt pattern. Also you might be able to find one in a Mustang or F- series truck. I'm sure other members will clarify all this and more for you.

I'm pretty sure it's the '96 or newer Explorer version you probably want. It's got disc brakes and is basically the correct width. It's got the 5x4.5" lug pattern, so it'll match a Wrangler. What are you wanting to swap it into?

Re: What came with 8.8s??

I've got a 91 YJ, and a friend of mine with a 95 XJ is also looking into an upgrade for his rearend. We're jsut shopping around, taking a look at what's out there. Did the pre-96 explorers come with Dana 44s? I could've sworn I saw one in the boneyard like that before, but i could've been mistaken.

I don't believe the pre-'96's came with Dana 44's. Should of been an 8.8, but with drum brakes.
