It should bring up a google search of the rear TTB ranger that's pretty widely known.

Does it not do that?

Why not use the independent 8.8 center and make you own a-arms. Seams like it would be a better way to go and would leave the driveshaft centered and tucked up high. Doing a arms would greatly reduce camber change during suspension cycling. The a arms could be made with some dom and hiems. Im thinking out loud but you could use a leaf spring flipped upside down and turned 90 degrees from its current position as a way to put it on springs.

@JBFab - I had a '77 Corvette, and what you're describing is the rear suspension of that vette, right down to the single traverse leaf spring.

All IRS Vettes (except maybe the current body) use that setup.

Using a front axle in the back is just as bad as a rear axle up front - the gears aren't designed for that kind of load on their coast faces, and the oiling pattern doesn't work in reverse; especially not upside-down. Axles aren't designed to work in space; they need gravity to be where it was expected to be during the design. And they need the ring gear to spin the direction it was expected to spin for any significant loads to be handled.

would be kind of a waist but might make a good prerunning setup if done right. would have to regear it with normal gears instead of reverse cut. would have to find a way to get the diff center or the u-joints might have alot of angle. the actual strength wouldnt be there compared to an 8.8. the only reason to do this is 4 wheel steering. even then id say a Dana 60 would be a better choice. i blew up my 96 dana 44 diff from driving around front wheel drive for about 3 weeks, imagine doing that all the time?

Just a thought here,

Would it not be easier to use an IRS 8.8 out of a Thunderbird or Mustang for this

I'm thinking it would require less fab work, the Diff housing should be able to sit higher giving more clearance, it is designed for the rear and all of the parts are all factory parts.

This question comes up every other year doesn't it? ........
I think in a truck a ttb might be better than a ifs from a mustang or vette. As the ttb would have more flex I would think.

I looked into it earlier, the exploders and expeditions went to independent 8.8's. i googled explorer irs 8.8 and some people are building some nice setups using them. The cobra setup would be nice for handling but would lack alot for anything off road.

You ever notice how Cobra owners swap out for a live rear?

Are Cobras not RWD already? That's a "live" rear end.

Do you mean "solid" (non-IRS)?

Hmm, I did not know that and since my ex-wife drove an expedition I should have. Good to know!

I will have to look into this since I want to do an explorer rear disc brake upgrade anyway and the idea of an IRS is interesting.

Just don't get all the naysayers about the TTB's?
I've owned several vehicles with TTB and I have never had any problems with any of them.

It seems sometimes there is a forum wide mindset that SAS good, TTB bad group think going on without thinking that not everyone plans to use their Bronco for rock crawling or other type of off-road driving where the extreme flex is needed.

Honestly IMO that is the only area where the SAS is superior.
For snow, sand, desert or general off roading I think the TTB is better.

Not everyone wants their Bronco to just be a play toy.
Personally I want mine to be good at all off-road situations as it is my go anywhere anytime I need to get somewhere regardless of the situation or driving conditions.

So for the O.P. who is interested in a rear TTB, if it fits for what you are trying to build than go for it. Just don't get mind locked onto a rear TTB if another replacement will work better, be stronger and/or be more cost effective and easier to build.
