    I have a question about swaping axles.

    I found a Dana 60 front and 14bolt rear, but my concern is what will i need to change out when and if i get these axles. they are pretty cheap like 100 a piece. Will the xcase have to be changed out? Please just give me any info you can.

    THANKS A LOT

    who knows what i will be driving in a few weeks.
    Right now i have a 98 Explorer with 6" lift and 33's.

    You should have to change very minimal.

    I will buy them $500?

    Ken-

    Let me look a little more into this, and if i dont end up using them i will let you know. I just called the guy and he thought it was only the rear, but still for 100-200 that is a good price.

    who knows what i will be driving in a few weeks.
