Ford 8.8 already shaved
1 Attachment(s)
I have a Ford 8.8 i bought from a buddy of mine a while back. The axle is from a 98' explorer and is equipped with 4.10 gears and a factory LSD. Axle has already been shaved of its previous brackets, and the tubes have been welded to the pumpkin.
I had planned on building this 8.8 for my 97' TJ but another buddy of mine is selling me another 8.8 that is already completely built, which saves me a lot of time, work and stress.

8.8 will need new brackets (for XJ, TJ, or YJ) and a complete brake setup (rotors, pads, calipers, lines) I believe i may have rotors for it.
I do have new backing plates for the e-brakes, and a new hard line for the brakes.

Im looking to get $320 OBO, considering the brackets have already been shaved and tubes have been welded. The rest is pretty straight forward.
Price is negotiable, dont be afraid to make an offer.

LOCAL PICKUP ONLY. Located in lower Westchester, NY about a half hour from NYC.

Axle hasn't been used since the tubes were welded. And a buddy of mine that owns a shop, and has done plenty of axle swaps welded it for me. He has experience and good welds.
