Opinions on Ford 8.8 for a CJ
A buddy has a Ford 8.8 that I might could pick up for cheap. Off an Old F-150 Explorer Truck. Drum Brakes and I think it was 60" wide. It's gonna have the 31 splines and 1.3" Diameter Shafts. Same as the Good Ford 9, But I also believe that it is a C-Clip Axle. Don't know if ALL 8.8 are or not though.
Anyway, not to thrilled about C-clips after this past weekend when John blew up his D35 and we had to do a Trail fix.... What a PIA C-clips are.
If I did go 8.8 I'd put disc brakes on it and ditch the Clips, An no I wouldn't spend the $150-$200/ side for C-clip eliminators before anyone suggests them.
anyway, I want Opinions on the 8.8.
