Talking Explorer 8.8 Install + Extras 2441.28 How'd I Do

OK .. I got a kick out of the re-gear thread so here's another one.

I had Ford 8.8 with 4:88's and a Detriot Locker put on the rear, and then a tru-trac with a D-30 4:88 front gear set put on the front for $2441.28.

How'd I do???

Did you have the shop build the entire 8.8 for you? All the brackets, brakes, yokes, sway bar etc....? If so then I also think you got a good deal. That's a lot of work and you had a lot of parts thrown in.

how, could you not know about A swaybar, but know all the other stuff.. swaybars is to stiffen your rear suspension. for less body roll.

Sarcasm[A] is stating the opposite of an intended meaning especially in order to sneeringly, slyly, jest or mock a person, situation or thing. It is strongly associated with irony, with some definitions classifying it as a type of verbal irony intended to insult or wound. Sarcasm can also be used in a humorous or jesting way depending on the intent of the person speaking.

What do you want pictures of??? A rear end? There is nothing to see. The point of the thread was the value of what was done. It serves no instructional purpose. If you go to Quadratec's web site you can look at all the gears, lockers, and rear ends you like all day long. It's pretty cool ... check it out... www.quadratec.com.

If you seriously want to see some pictures of the brakets etc... I can upload.
