The 2.5L uses over head valves with hydraulic lifters and a cast iron block and cylinder head.

I wouldn't worry about the thinner walls on the tubes, it's a strong axle.
My 2006 f150 had a 9.75" rear axle (six lug), I ran 35s with 4.56 gears and a detroit, behind a tuned 5.4l and ran it HARD. Easily spun both rears on dry pavement. I also carried a 7 foot slide in (cab over) camper for many many miles, over 5k lbs on the rear axle, and never had an issue or concern about it. For what it's worth anyway....
If you're really concerned about dragging it over the rocks I suppose you could sleeve the outside but I doubt it's needed.

yeah, well ill def be trussing it to run my rear 4-link anyways, so sleeving it may just be over kill. ill wait and see how it goes. good thing is, i started tearing into it just a little last night and the axle is extremely clean. You can really tell it had been taken care of.
