My gears came today.
I went with 3.73 so that i don't have to regear the 8.8

I plan on building a doubler so that sould help when wheeling yet i still want the 3.73 for driving on the road.

Default Finally about time for an update

On Sunday I pulled the dana35 and all the TTB brackets to make way for the dana 44. I'm going to have to figure out either new radius arm mounts or a little bit longer radius arms.

The front stripped

The dana 44 placed under the explanger

Also installed the rear lug adapters

Man, you're one hell of a problem solver! This is kinda like a time-lapse view of how an Explorer can turn into a 1 ton Ranger. (stay tuned, it'll be a 1 ton by the end of this thread)

I'm going to thrash on it the next couple of days- we'll see if i can get it ready for Kenny's.
Grand Master - i don't plan on running anything over a 36/37" tire so i'll be running the 44 for as long as i can.
