Ford 8.8 conversion?

I have a 2003 wrangler with a D-35 and want to replace it with something stronger. I found someone with a 1993 Ford Bronco who wants to get rid of his 8.8 axle. Is this a better way to go than just putting in the super 35 kit. It looks like I can get the 8.8 for $25. Is this rear end even compatible? How much can I expect to spend to getting it installed.

the bronco axle will be wider than your front. the 8.8 from an explorer is just about the same width.

So let me get this right, you are questioning on buying an axle for 25 bucks?

Trip he's questioning if it would be worth him buying this axle to use with his Wrangler. Not the cost.

And I don't know if that year Bronco had a 9" in the rear or the wider full width 8.8. Either way to keep your stock front you'd have to do some modification to the rear including narrowing it. Honestly I don't think this is the axle for you.
