Pulling my 8.8 possibly tomorrow morning couple questions

Okay so my friend wants to go to the junkyard tomorrow to get some stuff so I might tag along and get my 8.8....I called today and the guy told me 130 for the axle and all the other junk...So I'm going to pull the axle and the e brake assembly...The axle is complete so alll I need is everything on the axle and the ebrake assembly.....How much of the E brake assembly do I need to pull....Also what is the difference between the explorer 8.8s and the Ford Ranger 8.8s...


Last question was there a carrier break in the 8.8s...I don't care about what gears are in the one I get due to changing to 4.88s but I don't want to have to buy a new carrier.

I used the stock e-brake cables per the jedi method, but if you want to go the explorer route then remove the e-brakes at the frame bracket.

As you probably know, it's also best to get new u-bolts but you may want to grab the old stock ones for trail spares.

As far as ranger v. explorer - there is nobody on this board running a ranger 8.8. Nuff said?

Carrier break - don't think there is one but maybe someone else will chime in or you can go to the 8.8 facts page.

Okay thanks man that pretty much answers my questions. As for the u bolts I will most likely be cutting them off to save time but I might consider pulling them.

I don't know how much you are looking to spend on the e-brake, but it if i did it again i would buy this--- http://www.4xshaft.com/index.html click to rotor kit.

I know someone on here runs this setup and loves it. You need a plate style SYE though.

The only thing you need to worry about is LSD (limited slip differential), if you are going with a lunchbox locker back there. If your planning a full carrier locker, I'd go with an open carrier anyway. Then you can sell it to someone later.

Well I didn't pull it today friend wimped out so I'll have to pull it later in the week but I got a ton of grinding done so thats a + As for the Locker I'll be putting an ARB in there so it doesn't matter what carrier It has in it correct??? like because its a full case the locker itself is the carrier correct or am I wrong?

Okay cool beans yea the guy told me they only have a couple so my selection is going to be limited...I'm replacing pretty much everything on it though besides the axle housing and the shafts....So I don't think it will matter much the gearing or LSD or open
