How's the width of the Explorer axle work out on the older Ranger? Any idea the specs on the rims you're running as far as offset/backspacing/width?

Thanks! Oh, and nice burnout!

Thought the explorer axle was the same. Was much wider. The stock 8.8 was like 56.5". Im guessing the Exp axle was 59" or 60". Had just scored a sick set of centerlines with nice rubber off craigslist that fit the old 8.8 PERFECT too. Was kinda bummed. The wheels I have on there now are 17x9's. Got em from a kid who drifts in my area for $15 each, lol. 3.5 offset so about a 6.5 backspace. I had 245/50's but they rubbed the fender too much so I got 235/55's and rolled my fender a little with a baseball bat and now its ok. Im still kinda shocked that the whole thing bolted right up. I had to drill holes for the sway bar and the trac bars wont work but everything else went in easy. Given I have the axle flip brackets...
