For your flange adapter, verify the U-joint you have. It could be a 1310 or a 1330 series. If you have 1310, this may be a good time to upgrade to a 1330. You'll have to replace or have the driveshaft modified.

Don't forget shock mounts.

For the brake lines, you can use the stock Ford brake hoses. If I recall right, I used two passenger side hoses. You can reuse your stock t-block from the dana 35 mounted at the breather tube.

look at East Coast Gear Supply and see what they offer for the 8.8. It should give you some idea of what's available
