Sorry but... what? None of this makes sense. The driveshaft on an explorer is splined in the middle not at the yoke and they use 1330 joints not 1310.if u can get the driveshaft from the explorer also, you don't need to by an adapter. i use the one off of the 8.8 that i got and don't have any problems. explorers use 1310 joints also.

OP - I collected all the parts I needed for approx 500. Axle for 130, new rotors and pads, 1310 flange I listed, zj ebrake cables (not sure they are long enough), new ubolts, steel plate for ubolt plates, new perches, a ruffstuff cover, the whole 9 yards. Shop around and you can find some pretty cheap parts. I've made a couple detailed posts on this, on my phone atm so I don't feel like retyping it all.
Crown automotive makes ebrake cables now for putting an 8.8 (or an 8.25 with zj discs) in an xj, if you want to be sure it will all fit that is your best bet probably.
That would most likely make it out of a late 90s ford explorer, and good chances it's got a limited slip diff in it, most of them do. I'm with the other guys though, pull it yourself and save tons of money, they're almost as common at the yards as XJs. I got mine on half price day at pick-a-part for 75 bucks3.73Xgear ratioX31 SPLINE AXLESX59.5 inches hub to hub
The # on my invoice when I got the is DBC05. They're relatively new, I dont know if they're listed or whatnot, give Jeff a call at 781-821-2276.I searched for those and couldnt locate them on the site.... have any #'s on them ?
That makes a bit more sense, I'll have to check on my next run to the yard. I have heard 3 or 4 rumors of a 1310 8.8 flange on various ford vehicles with none being correct so far, so it will be awesome if this one is right.the adapter that bolts onto the flange of the 8.8. you take it off the explorer drive shaft, and put it on the cherokee drive shaft. i pulled my 8.8 out of a 91 explorer and the flange connected to my stock drive shaft. i believe the older models used a 1310 joint.
