Price for a Junkyard 8.8?

I am wondering what most would believe is a decent price for a junkyard 8.8 with discs. I did a little searching and couldn't find any posts about it.

They are not all the same. The ideal 8.8 is out of a ford explorer and I also think the mountaineer.

Check out the link below.. Use the drop downs to change what you want. Select "rear axle assembly".. If you plan to re-gear look through each ratio listed to find the cheapest unit.

Thanks, I never knew about that website. I found a few near me in South Georgia for around $150.

Is there anything I should look for when inspecting the used 8.8?

Try to find one complete with disk brakes, decent rotor dust shields (they also support the p/brake shoes under the rotors) diff cover and no obvious signs of trauma.
