    Default What year rear end Ford 8.8

    Jeffb_79 posted a explorer rear end just wondering what years are the recomended ones to put in a TJ (2000).
    I am looking to re gear or maybe swap out to ford 8.8 Price and timing will dictate.

    ok should of known Stu's site would have some thing on it..
    Too much specialty work for my know how.

    Here are some other docs to read up on.

    http://www.dpgoffroad.com/tech/8.8pg2.htm

    And here is the kit I got for my YJ http://www.knowwhere2jeep.com/catalo...muvfa1cve455f0

    And they have one for a TJ swap http://www.knowwhere2jeep.com/catalo...muvfa1cve455f0

    I am in process of one of these installs and almost done cleaning up the Ford 8.8 I have. Then all I need to do is coordinate the install with one of my buddies. And hopefully get it swapped out, soon.

    Let me know if you need any help..
