I dont wanna mess with the pumpkin at all tho, thats the thing, i want a pretty much straight swap... so if anything goes wrong i can tow it home and either fix it or swap back my old one. the big thing here tho, is i dont want t be messing with the pumpkin,
You cant really take the pumpkin apart from the axle tubes, if thats what your implying. You have to take an entire new axle and put it under the truck. Check your door jamb for your axle code.
As far as swapping a explorer 8.8, you would need new spring perches, shock mounts, and make sure all the brakes are intact otherwise you will be buying those too.
