I'll be hitting the road in the morning to pick up an 8.8 from a 96 explorer. I probably wont get around to working on it for a few weeks but it was a good deal so I didnt want to pass it up.
It has 4.10 gears so I will also be looking for a dana 30 with 4.10s because they only go for about $250 on craigslist and it will be cheaper than re gearing my current dana 30. Eventually I will be going to 4.88s when I get my 35s but the 4.10s should hold me over with my 33s. anything is better then the 3.07s I have now.
I will be getting my brackets from these guys River Raider Off Road
They are right up the road from me and another friend of mine is also buying a set from him so were hoping to get a little price break.
