Re: 8.8 Ford in a Jeep TJ

What are your questions? I'm about to do the same swap with my TJ. I believe JeeperXJ99 has done the same swap. Here is a good write up on swappin one in Ford 8.8 Install This is probly the one time its good to say go search on JU, there is actually a lot of useful information over there. Jeeps Unlimited If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

Re: 8.8 Ford in a Jeep TJ

What kind of questions do you have? I have an 8.8 from a '95 exploder in my jeep, i used more 8.8 brackets their adapter yoke. I didn't do the welding of the brackets but i was there when it was done. I used 2 pass side exploder soft lines and my dana 35 hard lines. We had to fill the old breather hole and drill a new breather hole. I love the rear discs and i havn't broken it yet with 32" sx's and a mini spool in the rear (though i have gernaded a d30 shaft and i'm unlocked up front)

Re: 8.8 Ford in a Jeep TJ

Thanks dude thats a great link!! [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] It answered most of my questions. I was wondering if all 8.8 are offset like that or just certail one's? Also what did you guys do about the yoke?? And would it be a good idea to angle the diff for less of a driveline angle? I believe the braking system will be simple other that should I run two lines for the calipers or stick with the one, I think stick with the single line for the two just so I won't get too much braking from the rear end...

Re: 8.8 Ford in a Jeep TJ

finally getting rid of that thing, probalby a lot less harsh than my mini spool but it's just so much fun, if i had the $$ i'd jump on it but i'll deal with my poor mans locker.
