Arrow The Ruffstuff Axle Simple Swap

UPDATE 1/12/14: Due to the demand for this kit we have recently purchased a Ubolt Bender and we no longer have to buy expensive finished Ubolts, we buy the Blanks and bend them ourselves! So, we have been able to lower the cost of this kit by $10 and the cost of individual Ubolts also

UPDATE 5/16/13: This is another thing we have made for 9 years now and we still offer a larger selection with stronger parts and better options than anyone! This is one of the most popular things in our catalog and if you still have a D35 you do need to know!


This is the basic kit essential for an Axle swap, more items could be added but this is the bare minimum, You will receive 1 pair of our 3/8" thick A50 Steel U-Bolt plates with 3 pin mounting options, a pair of our Spring Perches with the same pin option to match, 4 - 10" x 5/8" Fine thread Grade 8 U-Bolts with 1/4" thick cut Hardened washers and real Ubolt Hardened Tallnuts, and a pair of Shock Brackets. This will get your Axle under the rig. BTW, this is NOT a Chinese made product that just can't hang with the big kids, this IS the Big Kid.



Also, our Ubolts are the correct size for your Axle, not 1 size fits all.......these are offered with 8 Axle diameters and 5 Leaf Spring perch widths.........UPDATE.........Now also available in 3.5" D70/Sterling diameters & D60 GM, Ford, & Dodge front swaps too! And I almost forgot, Ford fullsize 3" Leaf Spring widths also......

If you still have the D35 ANY axle swap would be good but if you can an Explorer 8.8 is a great choice!

If your breaking axle parts constantly, the next logical thing is to swap in a bigger & better axle!
