front diff compatibility,
My front diff in the 08 is making some noises,,

does anybody know from what other years the front diff will fit ,??

i am not sure, but somebody said the one i have out of a 98 Explorer is not a fit ,,

i would like to fix it myself if i can figure that out, if not i have to go to the dealer,, ugh,,,
 






Update,,

seems the front diff was down a bit and i got to it before it got wrecked,,

put in new gear oil, , and it seems good to go again,, :)
 






added this today,, 30 inch,, 180 watt,,

Hey Pete keep us updated, looking good so far.
 






work slowed a bit , had a heart attack, but as soon as the doc says okay, i'm gonna do some things with this truck,
 






got a Superlift, a body lift and some 35's calling her Name,,
 






Take care of yourself! Trucks can wait!
 






OH i FULLY intend on waiting till i am better before i start this,,
 












Hmmm,, bit of an issue developed,,

driving into town last weekend cruising along all fine and shiz, and it happened,,,

Rounded a corner and started up a hill, about 3/4 of the way to the top it shifted back from o/d to i believe 4th gear, as it did the rpm's went way up, almost to the 6000 range,,,

i let off the pedal and eased it back on slowly a few times,, as i crested he hill it must have shifted back into the o/d cause it caught and i continued on my way, ,

got to a corner with a stop sign,, came to a complete stop,, no worries,,
lanes were clear , pushed the gas,, no movement, ,
pulled the shifter down to 2 gear, away i went,, , but it seems i am missing a few gears now,,

it will take off, shift a couple times, than it's missing one, o/d works, , no reverse though,,

so off to Manitoba i go to get one after Vroomzoomboom found one for me at a great price ,
Thanks Tim,,

yeah there is some crap in the back of the Explorer,.,, but there is a transmission,, :)
