well it could have been out of an explorer, just one of the older ones.

since it has drum brakes, it is a 28 spline.

not sure if you could swap in 31 spline shafts.

You'd have to get a different carrier and I'm not sure it would fit.

Darn the bad luck.

Thats not correct.

All Explorer axles are 31 spline, even the drum brake equipped ones.

To determine if this is an Explorer or Ranger axle, take a quick WMS to WMS measurement. If its around 59", its an Explorer axle. If its closer to 56-57", its a Ranger axle.

It's a little bit better. I would search for a 31 spline though.

That's also very narrow for your application. You were already going to need spacers, but that's a bit much. IMO.

Okay, just looked at the pics again.

Thats definitely an Explorer axle.

Its spring under which Explorers are.

Rangers are spring over.

Get a ARB locker made for 3.73's and up so you can run gears to match your front and do a disc conversion and you are set. Thats cheap right?
