You realize that only 2 of those are 28 spline eh? Everything else is 31 spline.

This is the cheapest I could find

Count the splines on the axels.

But the 31 splines are for expo's and some f150's. Extended cab rangers from 96 or something all have 8.8 28 spline rear diffs

Only the FX4 and explorer axles (the most common of axles on rangers) have 31 spline axles. All other 8.8 rear ends are 28. I believe even the 7.5 had 28 spline axles but I'm not sure.

Tellico 4x4 is pretty good. A few years ago when I bought mine it was only $299.
