Ford 8.8 Kit

Been debating between the super 35 kit and a ford 8.8 for the past month. I have a 97 tj 4 banger with 3.55 gears and I was unaware until now that the 8.8's came in 3.55's "sorry im still kinda new to this lol" but anyways the super 35 idea is out the window and will be picking up an 8.8 asap. My question is who has the best bang for your buck as far as the conversion kit and driveshaft yoke? Thanks!

The 97 4 bangers came with 3:73 gears for te auto and 4:10 for the manule Trans. Did you change them to 3:55?

For about 35-50 bucks you can find the adapter piece that fits the 8.8 axle for the driveshaft. There are the stronger yoke kits that are a little pricier as well. As far as the brackets...I like the look of the Artec truss kit. It takes a lot of the "guess" work out of setting up the brackets, plus its some added strength.

I used the KnowWhere2Jeep 8.8 Kit. It came with the brackets, cables, and I believe the yoke adapter that I needed (if not I might've gotten that through NAPA). Easy to install, but that Artec truss kit looks interesting too.
It's got a Willy's body, a Chevy engine, Ford axles, GM transmission, and Dodge steering components... it must be a Wrangler.
