Does anybody know where I can get 31 spline axles for a 94 ranger and what bearings I will need if I keep the 28 spline axle housing. I am going to load it up with 4.10s and a torsen lsd

just checked Jegs.com $260 for a pair of Moser shafts, shipping in a week.
they have full details & specs. I would think numerous vendors sell these.

You don't know anyone that can make a manual replacement for the M5OD-R1 that can handle 600 ftlbs?

I think your pretty much looking at a ZF at that point.

Freidrichshafen?

Anyways, A Ford/GM-truck ZF of various flavors, or a medium duty truck transmission is your best bet for dealing with 600+ lb ft.

When I look up ZF transmissions I find ZF freidrichshafen realistically I'm only looking at about 500ftlbs but reliability is the key of this build and the R1 is only rated to 331 ft lbs I want a manual 5 or 6 speed replacement I can find automatics all day long but have had no luck finding a company that makes manuals
