Funny how they do that, why a different housing... ?

The old tired and true 9" could be built with anything, yes there were different size bearing but the basic axles could be built and built tuff.

Thanks for the info, maybe a 9" is in the future... ha, ha.. LOL.

I agree 100% BUT, for what I will be doing and the differences in connections, electrical that is, I think the 8.8 is the way to go.

So, if I have an 8.8 from a Navajo (Ex-Sport), and IF they have 31 spline axles and they should be, the axle housing tubes will be 3.25" OD ?

I have to crawl under and do some figuring... thanks,
