From all of my times researching this, the Explorer was only optioned with the ford 8.8 inch axle.

If I remember right the Explorer 8.8 didn't get disc brakes as standard issue until after 1999.

OK...thanks

The reason I asked, is that, it's is the "Pot" type rear, which iis what a 9 inch is. I thought that the 8.8s had the rear cover.........

Do you have a way to get a pic of it, All of my sources call for the Explorer to have a Dana 35 in the front 90-94 TTB/95-03 CV shafts, and the rear to have the Ford 8.8 inch for all years.
I found nothing different even in an online search????
