what can you take an solid front axle off of that will fit in a ford explorer without having to shorten it? (im putting leaf springs on the front)

What are you going to be using it for???
If your not too radical on it and only thinking 33's then a cherokee front end is great keep the coils and all.
The bolt pattern is the same so you can use the same wheels on front and rear. You will need to fab up some radius arms and a track bar...
They are about 1.5 " wider than the exploder but the extra track width won't be noticed.
If your going a bit more rad with it get an EB front and rear axle (d44 front 9" rear) and without mods you can run 36" tires on it. You can go with bigger tires with some better axles. but you will kind of max out at 38" till you go with a wider D60 front...[cheers]
