Yea it does.. Which is a fine axle for some.. But I have a tendency to break shit that is "hard to break".. I'm really hard on my trucks, so I'd like to put something stronger on there.

Yea, I'd rather just put a solid axle in and be done with it.. Even if I just upgraded the TTB, I'd still be wanting a solid axle eventually, may as well just start with that.

Yea, now I just gotta figure out what size axle I want and what kind of vehicle to get it out of.

the dana 44s under eb's from the 70's are a popular swap for exploders, i would think the width could work for a ranger too. also, my frined was telling me that you can use 70's f-series radius arms, and xj coils to make it an almost bolt in process. however, i have no clue if there is any truth to this.

My friend was telling me about using D44s from Jeeps because they should have the same bolt patterns but I don't know shit about Jeeps or what to look for. Lol

The Rubicon Axles I read still use the D30 outers, also they are low pinion so not really an upgrade in strength over the d35. The early mid eighties to early nineties grand wagoneer use a narrow track D44 but its six lug. the Early bronco d44's use the smaller d35 sized ujoints (jeffs bronco graveyard sells the upgrade shafts).
Theres some good write ups in the tech section on the ranger station.

if you use that d35 keep an eye on teh drivers side inner axle seal, i think mine fell in side the axle and it got packed full of mud, now it doesn't move so easily.
so my 5.13 swap may come a little sooner than anticipated.

bolt pattern isn't too important... I just don't want to feel like I wasted money buying these new ones a few months ago. The truck isn't going off-road only on-road until the axles are swapped.

yeah, but it's nice to only have to carry one spare tire! i've made the "two different bolt patterns" mistake on my street rod, and regret it often.

No I wouldn't do 2 different bolt patterns.. I'd end up getting adapters probably.
