Are you linking the grand Cherokees for the D44 in them? It's no good due to the aluminum center section.

Yeah I am all over craigslist. I have already talked to that D44 guy. And Reid bought his front axle. It was from an XJ. I will check the others.

Sorry Brother. A while back I found one for $150.00 (IIRC) and Chris (yeah the guy who used to have that black XJ ribbit ) picked it up after I posted it up. Good deals like that come up every so often...

Dude, I would not bother doing anything more to your d35. I would probably look for a d44, ford 8.8 or even a 9". You could even pull a chry 8.25 w/29 spline shafts which are nearly as strong as the tj/waggy d44. Any of those options would hold up fine for 35+ tires and would save you a lot of money in the long run.

I am most likely just going to stick with 33s to save money. So I may still mess with the D35. But I do know what I am getting into with it. It could very well be a time bomb. Maybe it already is.

If you decide to go with a 8.8 upgrade check out this link. http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=235261
It is pretty good reading. Check into PickNPull they have pretty good prices compared to the others I found on Car-Part.com.

Yeah I still kick myself for selling my old explorer with 240,000 miles on it for $800 bucks. That would have been a sweet deal. I keep seeing a company on craigslist that does complete 8.8s for around 1200 bucks.

I was looking into it and pick n pull sells the 1/2 ton rear ends for less than $100. They had a good amount of explorers the last time I was there. If you could find one with the 31 spine, .225 thick tubes, & the limited slip. That would cut the build way down in price. I have an extra D35 axle housing that I am probably gonna use to try and make cardboard templates and then a bracket kit out of some 1/4" steel plate. It will be awhile, but if it works I will let you know.

You could probably just go find an explorer 8.8 with disc brakes and pull it at a junk yard for maybe $150 then get a bracket kit here for $225 and have someone in jn help you weld it on, or pay a 4x4 shop or welding shop maybe a $100-150 to weld on the brackets on then swap in your new axle yourself. I guess you gotta factor in 4.56 Ring and pinion too which would run $200 including the install kit which you could install yourself or pay a shop $150+. So you would be looking at $575-875 depending on how close my numbers are and how much work you do yourself. A ford 9" or 14bolt be done for about the same price, but would be more for huge tires.

Yeah I have a guy with a huge pile of axles sitting in his shop if I ever get the money. He would cut me a deal and he could do all the work in no time. I'll just have to wait it out and see how things go
