  1. Dana 44 TTB swap questions

    I think that’s the way I will go. Now I just have to decide what Explorer to put them under.
  2. Dana 44 TTB swap questions

    “....a little more to put the 44 in...then the 60... an so on...” That’s exactly it. My friend says “go big or go home broken” Also since price is always a factor and my brother-in-law just offered me an F-350 4x4 for $500 I think SAS Dana 60 with 10.25 rear axle might be in my future...

  7. Dana 44 TTB swap questions

    I’ve been hanging around this forum for a few years now. Such an incredible source of information. I currently own a 1994 Ranger extended cab that I swapped in an Explorer rear axle and did all the front axle strength modifications to in preparation for a lift and 35” tires. Unfortunately for my...
