axle question

other than an explorer axle what axle will fit under my truck with the same ease as swapping in an explorer axle. will a mountaineer axle work or an expedition or something else like that? are the explorer axle codes the same as the ranger codes?

Good luck if you mean the Hazleton one....the Jeep guys usually grab them up pretty quick. Check out the Harry's in Pennsburg, last time I was there (about 6 months ago) they had at least 5 Ex 8.8s with discs, and about 3 more drum. Not too many people know about that one, and it does not get picked as much. Don't bother with the Allentown one, all import sedans for the "Southern" crowd.
