If you are not relocating the front track bar you may need an adjustable track bar. Keep that in mind.

Also, with the rear you will most likely want a new track bar bracket that compensates for the lift. (or an adjustable one)

The mml typically eliminates the need to drop the transfer case.

Do the mml and body lift together.

If the rear was tagged 3.07 then the front is too. Ratios must be the same if your going to even think about using 4wd. If you install the 8.8 and don't have enough cash to readily change the front to match lot of people take out the front driveshaft so even if they do screw up and go into 4hi/4lo they're safe.

And for spirng spacers stay away from stacking them on top of a coil lift. Only time it's really recommended to do that is using a small spacer (usually .75") up front to compensate for a heavier bumper/winch

It probably is, the only way it wouldn't be is if the previous owner swapped one of them out.. Look around where the cover is bolted, there should be a tag on there..

ob269 You can't run two different gear ratios on the front and back..

I would make sure you swap out the front gearing to match whatever you put in the back BEFORE you even think about using your 4wd..

Patrick H 2.5" springs and .75" spacer is going to put your front axle off center almost an inch. Probably 3/4" anyway..

What gear ratio is the 8.8 going to be? Hopefully it matches the front, I don't think it's good to run different ratios in the differentials.

Wattapunk Definitely add the 1-1.25" BL and the MML while you are at it. You will need that extra BL for the 33's.
