    Swappin explorer 8.8 to ranger 8.8

    I was lookin at an explorer at the junk yard that had a complete 8.8 under it with no tires on it sitting up nice and easy to grab everything I would need to do a disk brake swap I think. I was wondering if I 1. Pull the 31 spline axle shafts 2. Grab the spider gears 3. Take everything for the...

    Speedometer Suggestions needed

    Follow the wires from your 8.8 rear axle abs/speed sensor back to the transfer case. Cut the wires and re attach the sensor. Plug it into your transfer case. That is if you have swapped the stock t-case out for a manual 1354 that has the speed sensor on it. Or some guys have cut a hole in the...

    Is there anyway to make these tires better than what people say about them? I have a guy that said he had a set of 35 14.50 thornbirds with great tread that he would trade me for my 37 12.50 military ozs. I hate to keep goin down in size but the militarys blow a big one for just about anything...

    2001 on 93-97 frame

Anyways Im thinking about finding a bare 93 to 97 frame completely stripped of everything and swapping the body, motor, tranny, and rear axle over. If I...

    No speedo

    I understand what your sayin cause I realize that it counted teeth on the disk attached to the 8.8 ring gear but im not sure how i would go about doing that. Would I need to also take the part of the sensor off the old axle, connect it to my wiring, mount the sensor so that it is facing the...

    No speedo

    Damn. Thats pretty pricey. Looks B.A. tho. Instead of payin 300 I might look into just buyin a $100 Garmin and just keep it in the truck. the worse thing with the Garmin is that it has a couple second delay, but then again my truck isnt gonna be seen hangin around the strip. Thanks for the input...

    No speedo

    Ive solid axle swapped my 1999 ford ranger. I swapped the rear 8.8 out for a 1978 f250 dana 60. Now my abs/speed sensor just hangs out by my spare tire carrier under the bed. I wandered if anybody that has done this swap has figured out how to get their speedo to work? I have also swapped my...

    explorer abs issue

    Its a 97 AWD 5.0 explorer. My mother in law drove the damn thing so long without pads that the rotor seized itself to the wheel bearing. I replaced the pads on it first cause I couldnt figure out how to get the rotor off, then she drove on it like that for about a year then it sat for a year...

    9 inch 99 ranger

    Alright I think I might be somewhat of a tard. It must be a sealed bearing and it doesnt use an axle seal. Like I said never messed with one of these axles before. So where exactly do I put the rtv? And would one shaft be different than the other? The passenger side has a tapered bearing on the...

    9 inch 99 ranger

    No I got the damn seal in all the way into the axle tube. It seated properly and wasnt crooked or anything. Its when I was going to put the axle shaft back in that I was unable to get it to go past the 2 bearings and on the end of the shaft. I made a half ass pic of it on paint. The two arrows...

    Excessive play in front driveshaft

    Got an 01 ranger edge 4x4 5spd. I've been getting a popping noise out of the front end when I take off and when I shift into second gear. I grabbed ahold of the front drive shaft and it rotates almost a quarter turn either way before it catches. The pinion seal has a slight leak but nothing...
