Out with the old, In with the new
Hey everybody, This is my first post here on the forums! I have a 1996 GC Laredo, Bought it used 105k miles with a 3" lift for $1,200 4x4 works great minor electrical problem w/ interior lighting and a broken sway bar or two, plus the rear is bad. I plan on fixing it up and putting a 4.5" lift in, but I've ran into a snag with the rear...
So I've read among the Forums and other places and have come the the conclusion that I really don't want to put another Dana 35 in, so I don't run into this problem with the rear again(at least for a couple years). From what I've read putting a Ford 8.8 in is the way to go. Problem is I'm an amateur at this and I don't know what would have to be altered inorder for the rear to be bolted in and function properly(things like the drive shaft, Gear ratio's for the lift I plan on putting in, suspension, and the front axle). I would like to know what I need to replace inorder for this rear to fit/function right.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.s. Also if you know any Jeep specialist in my area that would be great!
