Needing a new axle

I'm in need of a new axle for my 95 yj. I'm not sure what the gearing is on my axel right now, or even what kind of axle it is. How can I check the gears on it, and how can i find out what kind of axle is it? Also, for the new alxe, what should i get gearing and size wise? It has a 6 inch lift with 35's. Thanks alot fellers!

frist what engine and what trans will help.
do you need an axle or a differrenal?
is this for the front or for the rear?
if an axle is what you need, left or the right, front or rear?
if you need a differrenal, look for a tag on the cover with the info you need.

Look for a Ford Explorer 96+ 8.8 rear. What motor do you have?

As stated a good swap is the ford 8.8, which can be found with 4.10/11's gears. Will need to weld on new spring mounts shock mounts etc.. but all kinds a aftermarket support. try car-parts.com to find one in a junk yard near you.

You can climb under the rear and if its a Dana 35 it will be stamped on the upper left side of the chunk. If your luckier, the original axle ratio tag will be on two bolts on the right side of the diff cover. It will tell ya if its a limited slip as well.

The Explorer axle swap is popular and you can find the proper one under a 96-01 model. If you do a google search you can find the right 4.10 axle code thats on a sticker in the doorjamb area. These year axles have disc brakes standard. Earlier axles have shoe style but if your gonna update get all you can. It is a pretty good bit of work but should be worth it in peace of mind.
