Found a Ford 8.8

First of all, is this a good deal? Second, what else would i need to make this mount up and be functional on a TJ?

It is $350, and the guy has several for sale. Here is a picture, and the text of the ad below.



8.8 Explorer rear axle
Gearing: 4.10
Differential type: Open
Brake style: Disc
Spline count: 31
Width: 59.5" mounting surface to mounting surface
Lug pattern: 5 on 4.5

Please make sure this is the axle that you need before contacting me.
This axle was pulled from an 00-01 Ford Explorer.
I have many customers using them for drag racing and off-road vehicles.
This is an OEM axle/gearing.
Complete axle, I have removed the brake pads and rotors.

SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY

$350 each

PRICE IS FIRM

I passed on one with LS 373s and all the brakes for the same money but I am in no hurry and pretty stingy. If you plan on running the 410s maybe

As you probably know, you will need a kit like this welded on to fit the TJ.
Artec Industries TJ 8.8 Swap Kit with Truss

As far as price, call your local junkyard and ask what they go for. (Some people are able to buy them closer to $200-$300.)

Also, remember that if you stick with the 4.10 gearing on the 8.8, your front axle needs to be geared to 4.10 as well.

Around here complete red axle assembly $99 plus $10.25 core plus 10% environmental fee
Plus 7% tax plus $2 to get into yard

So about $130-$135 to walk in pick one and walk out with it

So no that ain't a great deal as disc brake ford exploders are everywhere at the yards

I paid $700 for mine but it already had the TJ brackets and Artec truss installed. It was bolt up and go.

Yep, that's what I payed at the u pull and pay here in Denver.

4.10 can also be harder to find, so if that's what the OP needs it's a good deal.

So basically this is pretty high. Gotcha.

As far as the 4:10 gearing, I really don't know. I am basically prepping for a future possibility of going with 35's. I am in no hurry, and I have the time and money to do it right.

I paid $378 with tax for the same rear end out here in San Diego. I needed the 4.10 since I'm already geared at 4.10 now with Dana 35. I looked around for about 2 months before I just pulled the trigger
