I used the Ford cables to the bracket on the Jeep where the stock line runs to.

There is more to it than moving the perches over; they also have to be positioned to set the proper pinion angle. That needs to be done with the axle under the jeep and with it sitting at ride height. (weight on the springs)

You need two passenger side soft lines because the stock one on the drivers side is molded into the distribution block. If you swap out the left one you can connect it all up using your existing hard lines.

as has been said, yes. but for now, unless you've got your d-line stuff all dialed in, just scribe/score the marks on the tube. When everything else is ready to go, mock it up and you can set your pinion angle and weld the perches all at one time.

If you can't cut off the explorer perches without hacking them up,

Sure you can........but you gotta have the correct equipment. The arc gouger I used peels em off like opening a banana without mangling anything

out of curiosity. please pardon my ignorance but, what you do with the front axle? is it only swapping the rear with ford 8.8 or you do something with the front end?

Thanks

Our jeeps actually already have a resonably stout front axle. With regards to axles luckily us yj'ers only got screwed in the rear......
