Description:

Upgrade your weak Dana 35 rear axle to a Ford 8.8 rear axle. The ring gear in the Dana 35 axle is only 7.5" in diameter, where as the Ford is 8.8" in diameter, making it approximately 120% stronger. More benifits of the Ford 8.8 is it comes standard with trac-loc, and 3-1/4" axle tubes! You will need a Ford 8.8 from a 1995 or newer Ford Explorer. One minor drawback is the 8.8 rear axle is 5/8" more narrow per side than the Dana 35. This can easily be offset by using wheels with 3.75" backspacing. Most Explorers came with 3.73 ratio. Double check before installing, and change gear ratio's as necessary
