This must have been one of the last Ford 9-inch axles ever made. The 3.50 gear and limited-slip differential in mine aren't that impressive, but the 31-spline shafts have proven strong enough for 35-inch tires. The same can't be said for the tailpipe, which unfortunately snapped off behind the last hanger. Now the exhaust likes to collect under the truck when idling, and work its way into the cab while driving. A $53 tailpipe from AutoZone should solve both problems.
Budget Left: $868
