Thanks to both of you for the info. I think I'm starting to sorta figure out what's what.
I do have a quick qustion about Ford 8.8's. I've read in different places that the axles off of an F150 will fit and won't fit a Jeep.
The reason I ask is because the company I work for has a fleet of Ford vehicles. We have five 2005 F150's at my office. After a vehicle reaches 100K miles it's retired and replaced with a brand new pickup. Chances are I could get one of these F150's fairly cheap, grab the axles, and part out the rest of it. I might could even possibly convinve them to just let me buy the axles off of it.
So I guess first, does a 2005 F150 even have an 8.8 aaxle on it?
If so, is that 8.8 compatable with a Jeep?
