Which one should I take the front axle out of?

I'm probably thinking to much on this, and I know I'm already taking a chance when buying something used, but I wanted to know what you guys thought would be the better one to take it out of. They both have 4.10 gears also, everytime I go back there they are in a different spot so not sure if this plays into anything.

First is an 03 with 83,000 miles on it, no front end damage:

The other is an 01 with 81,000 miles on it, it has some front end damage:

Ya it is sorta obvious, but when I was looking at them in person they both looked just as bad, just wasn't sure. Well I guess I'll take the one out of the 03. Thanks guys.

I need the steering shaft, from the firewall to the steering box. Plan to use it for my SAS, but can't find a junked e250 anywhere. Would appreciate it if you could see if the shaft is still there.

Heres what I need it for if you're unsure of the part.

Yea, I'd also have to agree on the first one... And if you were in Canada I'd ask you to get that cluster from that one.

You can also use an explorer front axle too... I'm running a sport trac axle in the front of mine. Might be able to get less miles too....never know.


DWB is rare on '03's too. I want those gauges!!

I thought of your truck when I saw this. I'm gonna get a price on those gauges and probably take them out, somebody is already interested in them but if he ends up not getting it, you can be 2nd in line if you want.
