Ford 8.8 Rear Axle Simple Swap (31 spline)

This is the basic kit essential for your 31 spline 8.8 Rear Axle swap, more items could be added but this is the bare minimum. You will receive 1 pair of our 3/8" thick A50 Steel U-Bolt plates with 3 pin mounting options, a pair of our 8.8 Spring Perches with the same pin option to match, & 4 - 10" x 5/8" x 3 1/4" U-Bolts with 1/4" laser cut washers and nuts, and a pair of Shock Brackets . This will get your new Axle under the rig. BTW, this is NOT a Chinese made product that just can't hang with the big kids, this is the Big Kid.

This axle is found in Ford Explorers, F150 trucks, & Ford Broncos.

This kit is beefy. I bought this to put an axle from a 98 explorer under my B4000, and it is great. The only thing it doesn't include is mounts for the sway bar. The shipping was incredibly fast. I would definitely recommend this to anyone swapping an explorer axle under a RBV.

Perfect girth and fitment

These parts are nice thick material. 3/8" spring perches and u bolt plates. 1/4" shock mounts. Everything fit great and I was very happy with the final product. My only suggestion for Ruffstuff would be that the shock mounts could come longer and the customer could cut them down to size. If you are staying spring under axle but don't want to go to shorter shocks (because they will limit travel), you will have a hard time getting your eye-to-eye measurement the same as with your Dana 35 without relocating the upper mount. I ended up making my own lower shock mount on the u bolt plate. I don't see this as a flaw, but rather a hiccup to be expected with an axle swap. Still a great product that serves its purpose well.

So BEEFY. Such a good price. Perches fit perfect. U bolts are Massive with lots of length for your application. Couldn't ask for anything more. RUFF STUFF kills it again, just like all the previous reviews say. Thanks
