sasquatch and to think, this thread had very few replies at first, now it will never die.

mrbigjeep air intake, throttle body, computer module, headers, cat back exhaust, and if you have larger than stock tires then you could go with some new lower gears...and theres also high flow cats...thats a pretty good list of stuff right there that can help get more power

njatrtljp i know that you dont have to do anything to either of the other two. i am just looking for some ideas of things i can do to improve the overall performance of the jeep.

How much experience do you have with a throttle body?

njatrtljp did you do anything with your intake or with your computer to go with that?

I have a larger throttle body and put a spacer on there then milled out the mantifold and got good results from that

If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will tell me, but I believe that any year from an Explorer or a Mountaineer is a 31 spline 8.8.

Explorers are leaf sprung in the back. That is one of the cost associated with doing the swap is putting the correct hardware on the axle itself.

1BLKJP Hell if it's already open, just throw a lock right in there and call it a day. Mine hasn't let me down in over 2 years of operation.

It really depends on where you live to determine what you can find them for. Out here in AZ you can pick them up for about 250 any day of the week. Other places might be different. All you need to look for is that it came from an Explorer or a Mountaineer. Those all have 31 spline shafts. The one's that came from the Rangers only had 28 spline I believe. Disk brakes or Drums, it really doesn't matter. Either way your braking will be improved over stock.

bluvikng limited slip is kind of useless.......a little better than being open, but still will not lock up both wheels when needed. A selectable locker is the best, but also more expensive. Especially when on the street. From what I have been told about Detroit lockers, they can be very unnerving when they unload, especially when in a precarious position on the rocks. I guess it is all relative to what you get used too.
07-11-2006 12:36 PM
MR.CLIFFORD If you get a detroit you will have to get the gears setup again. No big deal but just the way you have to go. If I were to do it I would invest in superiors new kit. They have a c clip eliminator setup and some beefier shafts then toss in any locker you want. Detroits are tried and true and will stand the test of time

no, locker or limited slip, detroit locker or truetrac? etc etc

sasquatch where are you located?
07-11-2006 10:49 AM
MR.CLIFFORD Right now the axle is open but you can easily toss a locker in the case and be good to go. My 8.8 is the beefy one with 31 spline axle shafts and disc brakes. I bought it new and it has under 8000 miles on it. I only took it out to go full width 1 tons I'm asking 1000 for it but we can work a deal on shipping to get it to you. Let me know!

07-11-2006 10:10 AM

if you mean me, I join forums to get good info from the ones who know, instead of the companies that sell the products. I don't intend on selling anything in here. If someone wants some help on a product I would do that but not to make money, just to help another Jeep lover.

I appreciate all of the good input. Usually these places make me spend tons of money. The F-body club (Firebird/camaro) I was in made me crazy with all the stuff they told me about, and I bought. $5k later I have a extremly fast daily driver.

Thanx to all who have been responding to me!

Sasquatch, I am just curious about one thing? If you are a dealer and are also selling the Edge products why are you asking what people on a forum will think about it? Shouldn't you already know?

A D30 can hold up to 37's with some upgraded shafts and ujoints. But without that 35's are about the max and carry some spares.
