M.O.R.E.'s Overacker opted for super-beef in his YJ rear by installing Currie's 8.8-inch Ford rear axle from a '95-or-newer Explorer. This is the same size axle found in Ford 1/2-ton pickups, but the Explorer version is within 1/2 inch of the correct YJ width and has disc brakes and the correct bolt pattern. The trick diff cover from Currie reinforces the 8.8 ring gear's main bearing caps.
