you have the 28 spline 8.8. only years 2002 and up need to worry about the 31 spline unless you swaped one in your self.

even the 2002+ Rangers have the 28 spline UNLESS it has the FX4 Level II package on the truck, then it has the 31 spline axle......all other Rangers have the 28 spline unless you swaped in an Explorer axle, then it will have 31 spline axles......

I was wondering how much it would be to get the mounting plates for 28 and 31 cause I am pretty sure I am getting a explorer rear end in the coming months but want to install it right away.

I was wondering why the phone number didn't work! I went to the JD site. It's 865-938-6696.

Anyways, paid and he said will be shipping by next week. Price was $89 for the 31 spline Traction Bars and $11.20 s/h. So $100.20 altogether. -wo0t-

Big thanks to Rob for organizing this!!

I just called and to get both brackets its only 10 bucks more so if your planning on doing an axle swap in the future its a good price and shipping is only 14 bucks to my house. This is a really great deal

Thanks Rob!

the hardest part of the instal from what i have heard is drilling the front mount, the rest is remove u bolt bolts mount the bracket and bolt the bar to the brackets.
