7.5" ring gear

I dunno the rest...small, weak axles without many splines, small drum brakes, etc

and about 58" I think.

If you're looking for a decent Ford axle, the 8.8" from an Explorer is the one you want. 31 spline, big bearing, disc's after '95, 58" drum to drum and 5 on 4.5" bolt pattern.

Cheers

I know it's the 8.8 i want but i've had a hell of a time locating one at a good price.
just thinkin the BII might have an 8.8 too cuz i know it is in a lot of ford models...I'd just have to have it chopped down.

oh well
thanks
and if anyone has an 8.8 out there for me lemme know

Bronco 2's had 28 spline 7.5" rears. You MIGHT find an 8.8 in a '90, but thats only a rumour, AFAIK.

they only come in the 90 something (early) rangers and explorers that had the 4.0L, but as far as i know they are 28 spline...the explorers later on are 31 spline, not sure what year that started though....just a guess but the 31 spline may have started when the disc brakes were available???

All Exploder's (1990.5+)are 31 spline 8.8 in the rear. 95 up get discs.

According to the dealer manual the 2.9 model only came with the 7.5 rear and the 90-newer came with the dana 35 up front before that it was the dana 28. If you get one with the 8.8 in the rear with 2.9 it was a swap that someone did.

Ford has never followed their own schedules. There ARE '90 B2's and Rangers with 2.9/35/8.8
