Did the pre-95 Explorers have the 31-spline axle? There's a ton of those in a junkyard near here... I could use one for my BII.

pretty sure the only difference in the 96+ rear axles are the disc brakes

yea discs, 31 spline axles, bigger ring gear, and limited slip in some, its deffinatley worth it to put an explorer axle in a ranger just remember to get the master cyl. for the disc brakes.
