thought i'd pass some info
was lookin through my latest of petersens 4wheel mag.. found a few things some people maybe interested in.
1.DTS (drive train specialists), can and will build rear axles anywhere from a 12bolt-ford 8.8
2. Superior axle & gear is offering whats called "super 8.8 axle system", says, it fits 98+ exploder/mountaineer 8.8 axles w/ discs. so if u have a exploder axle, this could be a decent upgrade to that 8.8. comes with 4340 chromoly axles, 2 HD machined axles retainers w/ spacer rings, 3/4 ton timken rollers, and 2 C-slip eliminators.
just thought i'd pass this info on. some people may be interested, some people may say its junk..
