debruins looks like you can get all of the other parts as well for around $400 and then just have to do a little welding, so that bring the total to $700 probably plus a little more

heres the best write-up i found

Tj Bunch J does that 8.8 just bolt on ro is there alot of work needed?

jherrin215 Your front axle would be fine. It's a Dana 30. It's just the back that would need work. From what I get around here you would be better off to replace it with an 8.8 ford explorer axle that you can get at the junkyard for about 200 bucks.

baga3636 about how much would it cost to replace axles with dana44s?
07-15-2007 11:25 PM
jherrin215 You can put 44's on that monster for a while!! From what I have heard you can run 35's but you need to be easy with the skinny pedal!!

baga3636 so can i put 35s on?

Triple88a 33s should be good for the d35.. ..no lockers though
35s can also work but you gotta baby it. Look at your rear diff.. does it have plastic/rubber fill plug on it or is it metal one.. this will tell you if you have 35 or 44.. hope for luck man lol

baga3636 im not 100% sure but im pretty sure they are the 35s

Part of that depends on which rear axle your talking about.
Dana 44 or Dana Turdy5

The easy answer is one size smaller then the one that's on it when it breaks

But honestly if you go real easy on the skinny pedal or don't wheel it very hard you can run the Turdy5. I know guy that have run them for a couple years, but you have to baby them.

Unless your talking how big of tire you can put on before you have to lift it, then the answer would be 31 X 10.5's
