Ok so i talked to my local jeep shop, jeffs jeep yard. and they are saying that I will need a conversion kit as well. Also that i have to find one without a slip yoke, if i can i will need a kit so i can fit my drive shaft on it.
Any wise word for this project. right now im just starting to collect parts.
Saw your post on another thread about coming To this one to help. What year is your Jeep? And here is a sheet to help with the axle of your choice. And no need to worry about slope yoke or non slip yoke. And I went with RUFFSTUFF specialties for my swap kit. It is beefy and solid also is cheaper by about $30.
And parking brake adapter kit or ingenuity-http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-4974616-yj-ford-8-8-e-brake-cables.html
Your ujoints on a 95 are 1330 spicer u joints and the explorers are as well. So if you can get the driveshaft adapter from the yard you might be able to save some $. Hope this info helps you in completing this upgrade.
I just gada get all the parts together because i will not be doing this swap myself, as much as i would like to. Its my DD and it might take me 2-3 days to do this and also dont have alot of tool to use. Iv got a shop that will put it all in cheeper if i bring them all the parts.
So the first kit you linked me to does not have the u joints? and ill be sneak and try and rip then off the car when im at the yard!
All the stuff I sent in the links is what you'll need. The u joints are already on your driveshaft now. Unless yours are bad you need not to replace them at this time. All you'll need for your driveshaft to fit and work is the adapter. And when you pull the axle don't cut the rubber brake lines, cut the brake lines on the steel line that the rubber one attaches to on the frame rail. You will need the rubber one for an easier install. And yes you can sneak the adapter if you leave it attached to the axle after you remove it from the driveshaft at the yard.
Yes from the first link the axle swap kit you don't need those three other things they are just showing you some things you can buy to fix/upgrade more. All Explorer 8.8 as far as I know are 31 spline. Sounds like a good deal if everything is intact.
