    Ford 8.8 Axle Swap Kit For Jeep Wrangler TJ/LJ
    Tired of Broke C-Clips and Bent Axles?
    Time to swap out that tired, old Dana 35 axle under your Jeep TJ or LJ Wrangler? Look no further, our swap kit includes all of the brackets and tabs to turn your 8.8" Ford Explorer axle into a drop in swap.
    This kit includes everything to replace your link mount points, coil buckets, anti sway-bar connections and trac-bar mount.
    The most commonly swapped 8.8" axle is the Ford Explorer rear differential. This will give you the same jeep bolt pattern, larger axle tubes, disk brakes (1995 and newer), 31 spline shafts, and a trac-loc differential. Be sure to compare your gears against the 3.73:1 gear ratio that comes in the Ford axle from the factory and adjust accordingly. 
    Kit uses factory mounting widths and locations for all mounting points.

    Ford 8.8 to the swap kit

    Awesome kit, all the brackets are .25” thick and beefy. All brackets index’d Nicely together. Still haven’t finished the swap yet so I’m relying on the awesome instructions for measurements and location. So far everything looks great! Great product guys!


    The reason I gave 2 stars is because of the following problems: the mount for the shocks is too narrow, I had to spend half an hour grinding the brackets just to be able to slide in the shocks, the other problem is related to the track bar mount, I assembled the 2 pieces on the track bar and there is a gap of 3 mm, before the metal touches, it has to be filled before being able to weld it, and make it a solid mount.

    Hi there Luigi! Thanks for the input and apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused. We are very particular about the tolerances that we maintain. Could you send us the dimensions of the interference in the shock mount? As far as the gap on the trac bar mount, we will investigate the cause of this issue and report.

    Very solid

    I have not had a chance to install the brackets yet, but they look very solid and professionally done. The instructions in the website make it look quite easy to install. Now to put my welding skills to the test.
