I would definitely get a D35 and 8.8 from an Explorer before you lift it. You may be able to find a set with 4.10's. I woulld run a 33x10.50 tire too instead of a 32, but that's just personal preference.

An Explorer interior might look really good in that thing as well.

Hopefully I have a 31 spline 8.8 already setup for a Ranger coming soon.....lifting isn't too much priority now, just getting it drive right (new transmission) is high up there....and then the interior...

I have a d28 with 4.10s, with a fairly new rebuild sitting in my garage..

it would get you rolling with your 8.8 and 4.10s untill you get a d35

Nice. I thought the idea for you getting rid of the truck was so you would stop spending money... I miss your truck.
