explorer axle.

you cant fit the 31 spline shafts in the ranger 8.8 axle (not including the level 2)

mine is a 91 explorer axle with 04 ranger brakes from a level 2. i didnt care if i had discs.

I'm not good at explaining it but here are two articles for you. My dad had some Pathfinders on his truck and they were balanced properly and his shocks were fien but some how they became cupped.

you think the 12.5 wide will look funny on my full width axle ranger? i really dont want to narrow the D44.
i had wide tires,and as for skinney verses wide for an every day driver,i vote 12.5

nitto is pretty true in tire sizes. so a 37x13.50 is pretty close to that, not oversized like most

edit

actual size on their site, 37.05 height, 14.27 width.
