Anybody running with the Ford 8.8 in the rear?

If so... how do you like it and how much did it wind up costing you over all?

I've set a few of them up. Cost depends on what you can get the axle for and how much of the work you can do yourself. It can be done for under a grand. If you can weld of have the brackets welded on for free from a club member or something then you will significantly reduce your costs.

Sounds like you are talking about a 14 bolt.
