      Most go with an 8.8 on a TJ because they are coil sprung already

      Americans are not a particular people from a particular place or a particular religion. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, anywhere, is an American.

      I've been searching fb marketplace and Craig's every week. There's actually a 8.8 with an arctec truss and Solid diff cover I found down in MD for $500. It's already in an TJ. I think it's got 4.10 in it. I should probably try and get it. Not really sure what to look for though.

    • not really anything u have to look for. Its pretty staight foward if it has a control arm/spring bucket mounts already done then it will pretty much bolt in. U may need different ebrake cables and a different soft line for the brakes.

    • its maybe .5" narrower. It should not make a difference. U may also need to shorten the driveshaft and get an adator flange because the 8.8 doesnt use a yoke.

      I made a deal with the guy yesterday. $600 for the 8.8 and his dana 30 front that way I don't have to re gear my front. He already has the flange adapter for driveshaft. I just need to get cables for the emergency brakes. I guess I will make this one big project and drop my tank and replace the shocks and tank skid at the same time as Aaron suggested.

      I couldn't take the crappy sound any more so I threw these in place of the factory speakers. Tremendous difference! Btw amazon is about half the cost of qtec on these things. All 4 speakers are plug and play. Pay no attention to all the sand in the jeep...

      Picked up my axles yesterday. Fri I installed a new Kenwood head unit, Focal 6.5" speakers in soundbar, and a 10" powered sub. The stereo totally transformed the driving experience. I Found myself driving around all weekend just listening to music and going nowhere.

      looks like the 8.8 just needs a little work on the hard brake lines and its set. Well a good cleaning and some paint too.
