Durango axle swap option?

What axles came in the V8 Dakota and Durango? I think I found that they came with a 9.25. What is that comparable to?

i dont know what axles they came with but a 9.25 is comparable (just slightly under) a d60.

Ya, I saw that the newer durangos with the 4.7 have the Cryco 8.25. But do the older ones with the 5.2 and 5.9 have different axles? Also....what were the axle options for the Dakotas with the 5.2 engines?


Is there another reason why no one uses the axles out of the 5.9L durango's?

The ChryCo 8.25 and 9.25 were both uses on the durango, a quick way to tell the difference is 10 cover bolts = 8.25 and 12 cover bolts = 9.25.

On paper the 9.25 looks nice, 31 spline shafts, 1.8" pinion with 29 splines, 9.25" ring gear...

...the downfall is the short list of lockers...

Well...looking at junkyard listing I can get a 9.25 open for $450. Is that not a good deal for a strong axle? I mean an 8cyl explorer axle is close to the same cost as the 9.25 or is it way cheaper to pick up? Is there a reason (besides locker availablity) to pick an 8.8 over the 9.25?

Did all explorers 6cyl and 8cyl all come with the 8.8 axle?

I dont know the specs of the Dodge axles, but the 8.8 is the same width as the 35, some come with LSD, and also available in stock Jeep gear ratios, and basically a straightforward swap. Also, they can be had for $200 around here, if not cheaper, and are plentiful with all the Exploders on the road.

Well....$200 is considerably less. I guess that is what I will go with then.

As a start, here are some on car-part starting around 250, in Ohio. I picked the 3.73 axles. Not sure if that's your ration, but I thought it was.

To my knowledge All explorers had the same axle V6 Or V8. You can check the axle code on the door.

And to the guy that said the 8.8 is the same width as a d35. You are a couple inches short.

The 8.8 is narrower, but not by a couple inches, it's about 5/8 of an inch per side

I think I'm going to put an 9.25 in my jeep , I keep breaking axle shafts in my Dana 44's (3 times now!!)

A Chry 9.25 is $95.00 at my local junk yard, and its the same bolt pattern
