its not that bad. First you clean the 8.8 down to the tubes and trim the pumkin a little to clean the factory sway bar. I got my brackets from M.O.R.E for 300, they are very strong and specifically made to fit the 8.8 tube. Welding the brackets is the tricky part cause they all go on at different angles while keeping a set pinion axle. It sounds hard but with an 8 dollar angle finder from home depot, Its easy. There a good website that give good measurements for that, stu-offroad.com. They will make it so easy for you cause teh 8.8s pumkin is offset a little to the passenger side and stu-offroad does the math and tells you where to put the bracket in distance away from the pumkin and end of axle tube in inches, then it gives you degrees , that where the axle finder comes in and just match it. It took me about an hour and a half to locate and weld them on. Then the brake lines come in, since the brake line T is connected to the xplorer, u need to order a passenger side brake hose and run the brake tubes yourself, its very easy.
Try to find one that has ur gear ratio, they have 3.55, 3.73, and 4.10. The whole biuld cost me 550. Stus-offroad.com makes it very easy with pics and easy measurements.
