    Corey and Elise's 1983 V8 Ranger build - aka - Project Interceptor

    I made the dash with 14 gauge steel, tape measurer, a jig saw, angle grinder, DeWalt cordless drill, 2 1/16" hole saw, 5" hole saw, a straight edge, a cheap harbor freight metal brake for the 2 bends, and a cheap harbor freight welder for welding little nuts onto the back of where the switch...

    31 spline FX4 Level 2 replacement question

    according to the foxbody forums, a built 31 spline 8.8 fully braced weighs a little over 50 pounds less than a narrowed 9". I'm currently at 2750 with 15 gallons if gas. and i could do the explorer setup, but i have the fx4, and i'd need to put the spring perches back on for the chassisworks 4...

    31 spline FX4 Level 2 replacement question

    There's lots of foxbody guys making 1000-1300hp and launching 3200 pound cars with 8.8s. the 8.8 itself isn't much of a concern to me. Plus the added weight of the 9" is something im trying to avoid.

    31 spline FX4 Level 2 replacement question

    so even though all the manufacturers essentially said "nope. needs to be custom made. cough up allllllll the dough" amongst my dozens of emails to every company i could find on google, East Coast Gear Supply (which seems to be a predominantly off roading rear and front end supply company) got...

    31 spline FX4 Level 2 replacement question

    I thought I had read somewhere the explorer axle is longer on one side than the ranger ones. The 31 spline fx4 rear end is the same width as the 28 spline version ranger, so I'm not entirely sure the axles are the same length as the 31 spline explorer or the 28 spline ranger. I also am not...

    31 spline FX4 Level 2 replacement question

    31 spline FX4 Level 2 replacement question

    Yeah that's my thing. Moser Sells upgrade alloy Axel kits (shafts, bearings, c clips or c clip eliminators, everything else you need for install) for 31 spline foxbodies, 31 spline crown vics, a few other 31 spline cars, and 28 spline rangers. They aren't super expensive and seem like an...

    Yes. I have the rear end off the truck at the moment, and am going to be replacing the differential, the cover, brakes, and feel like I should do bearings, c clips, and axles while I'm at it before bolting it into the truck. Moser advertises 31 spline kits (high strength alloy shafts, c clips...
