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

Reason: fixed typo on spline count
