Well I have had the parts in stock for over a year now but I think we paid around 430.00 for all of them. I ordered 100 bucks worth of joints from ballistic to do the wishbone bar.

I've never done an 8.8 swap until this one so I cannot say for sure. Alot of people say your stock stuff is fine, but I disc braked a D35 about 12 years ago and we had to change the booster to make it work correctly. We plan on running the stock one until we get the motor ready and then prolly swap it all out at the same time,

Well so far I am having problems with my salvage guy calling me back. I had intended on using ranger plates and ubolts but since I have waited on him since monday I am gonna do something else. I have a set of u-bolts from a 9-inch truck rearend and a buddy has a set of spring plates from an early bronco...so I am gonna cipher through that tonight. I looked at MORE last night and they are just retarded on the 8.8 install kit.

In regards to the question on if the stock braking system will be able to handle the additional disc brakes on the 8.8, the answer is yes, the stock system will handle it no problem at all.

I used the stock explorer flat style u bolts and at first the explorer plates but they were to wide against the jeeps skinnier leaf springs. I ended up throwing my stock d35 plates in a milling maching and elongated the holes to accept the wider u-bolts... worked like a charm and looks stock..

I had thought about that too but the stock ones will not allow the use of the nuts I have for the bolts, just not enough room.....lol my nuts are too big I guess

This whole thing can be done with stock parts actually. If you grind the perches off you can reweld them on top, The brake lines can be relocated and tacked onto the frame with no extension, when I did mine I bought nothing besides new brake hard lines because mine were pretty shotty looking. It was 4-5hr in and out of the garage.

I usually can do one by myself in a weekend including interuptions. I am taking more time on this one to take pictures and make sure everything is perfectly square since my parents are gonna be driving it and taking it to trips in the mountains....that and I am super anal when it comes to my work and cutting corners for a few dollars has never been something I do. I really only have about 2.5 hours in it so far. Its just taking some time to get the right stuff here for the 8.8 and with people calling me all the time looking for parts it slows me down alot

Well my parts guy came through...sorda. I got the bolts and plates about 4 oclock today and was excited to get home and mock it up. When I got home no dice, too narrow on the bolts and the plate, and they were way too long to boot. So I went back to working on the bolts I had and my buddy came over with the early bronco plates just in time. I had to grind the holes out just a lil to get them to clear the springs on either side but other than that she's flawless. I set the pinion and tacked the perches in place. Now if the UPS man takes care of me tomorrow I will have my joints and be able to make the new crossmember for the wishbone and see about what size tubing I need to use for it.

Cam was dead tonight and there really isn't much to look at so far, it will be out and in at least once if not twice before its in to stay. I was gonna charge the cam and get some pics, but since I had help I stuck the cummins motor back into my project so I could mock up the motor mounts in it too

Is there a "rule" on how much you need to wind up dropping the tcase? or is 1" just a standard that you try and it usually works?

I have used anywhere from none to 1.5" depending on the angle of the rear shaft but 1" is usually the standard.

I've never used a bolton kit simply because I like to put the rear perches where I want um...not where someone else has designed them to be
