Well I don't think I realized how much talk my question would get. I would love an 8.8. But just not possible right now. I could get the axle but them I have to regear it bc mine is a 3.07 so now that means I have to regear my front axle or swap It out too. Seems like a money pit. But I love my jeep. Just those damn ex wives keep taking all of my money. Lol.

we just hate seeing people throw money at what is pretty much a lost cause. you can polish a turd, so yeah it's nice and shiny, but it's still a turd LOL

Explorers from 95-2000 (or 2001?) will have a 8.8 with discs and 31-spline shafts.
you've got 31s, I would say try to get axle code 42 (open diff, 4.10 gears) or code D2 (limited slip, 4.10)
then you can get a D30 from a YJ with a 2.5/5-spd (will also have 4.10 gear)

shop around a bit (craigslist and u-pull yards) and you could probably get both axles for close to what a D35 disc conversion would cost

Good luck

I did not think about the D30 from a 2.5...... Hmmmm.... That makes sense now.... I love that everyone has put passion into my question and I love to read them all and read the Smack back and forth.. LOL...
I will have to buy one piece at a time just like Johny Cash did his Cadillac.... But he stole them.. LOL

Since I have the 3.07 now what will the 4.10 do to my RPM's and Mileage???

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

And THAT is one of the reasons why some particular shops are replacing the D35 with another one, so that they don't run out of work.

The end result is this, to each their own, thus it is their choice to use what they choose. Sure, some people can get away with using their D35 in their situations as where others who can or do less are running through them like water. I can argue for and against the D35 due to my own experience, BUT as it has been mentioned, why take a gamble with something that has a reputation for grenading under even the mildest of conditions when you can significantly reduce your chances of trail carnage with an upgraded unit? I'll take my chances on an upgraded unit.
