just got the 8.8! what now??
I just picked up a ford 8.8 with 3.73 gears and a limited slip for 200 bucks. I just grinded all leaf spring mounts off of it down to a bare tube. Now all i need to do is find buckets and mounts for the tj set up. Does anyone know were i can find these mounts for cheap? any suggestions would be be greatly appreciated. thanks

a company called MORE has the 8.8 kit with wall the stuff you need, they run about 300 bucks.

Your current gear size should be on a tag on the diff. on my 02 X it was stamped 3.73 on a tag

x2 on the MORE kit. There are others out there, but they are made for the 44 and yur gonna have to grind them out to fit. MORE's are made to fit the 8.8 and are plenty of beef.
