Question Identifying an 8.8 Differential?

Planning on doing the upgrade to an 8.8 differential from the 95-01 explorer. How would I identify this differential when going out to the junk yards? Is it on ALL explorers those years? any numbers or anything I should definately check for?

i'm not 100% it was the only axle used, but they are very plentiful under exploreres. since the explorer was the most turned in vehicle for cash 4 clunkers, there's tons of those axles available now. this link will help you to tell

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
