This topic gets covered every month. Don't tell me the search function is that bad.
If this is your style, then I would suggest just buying a F8.8 axle swap with the gears and lockers already installed, and the perches already in place. Then put matching gears and locker of your choice in front D30. $$$

You have a lot of questions that lead to other questions, I suggest you get better with the search function as all of your questions have already been answered.

The ford 8.8 95-01?? comes with disc brakes, you will have to change the gears and install locker or lsd. If these things are beyond your ability, certainly beyond mine, find an axle builder. The perches will have to be changed as well. And something about the E-brake. For searches use the keyword and look for posts with lots of replies.
Happy Wheelin'
