I read the Ford 8.8 is pretty decent???????
Any opinions welcome!My stock F100 rear end is 64 inches face to face. I want to run deep dish wheels 15 x12 so with the 60 inch 8,8 I will get a 3.55 ratio plus disk brakes.
I am extending the rear fenders 2 1/2 inches by welding in a 2 1/2 inch strip between the bedside and rear fender
A 2001 Ford Explorer rear end is 60 inches wide. Measured from the wheel mounting flange to the wheel mounting flange.
The 1957 to 1972 F100 rear end is also 60 inches. The 1973 up F100 rear end is even wider. With the Explorer ... it may be narrow enough that you do not have to widen the fenders ... with the correct offset rim.
