8.8 $145 and some fab work.

Which to go for?
8.8 is cool but 8.25 w/ disc? If it's 29 spline, get that. 35's are what you want, correct? I thrash mine welded, have yet to break anything in it.

Funny thing is that your bumper build write-up was a strong deciding factor for my purchase! I like the 2-color paint scheme you did too.

Either axle you'll be fine. I had an 8.8, I just did the 8.25 because it bolted in and the shock mounts were already gone so it was ready to be out boarded.

when you do it, if you get the black magic caliper flip too, you can run the calipers in front to make more room for shocks in the back.

They are a super simple swap, literally cut off 4 brackets, burn in some perches and shock mounts, run brake lines and done.

We sell the driveshaft adapters at iron rock offroad.

pulled my cargo area carpet, straight nasty

Now if there's one thing you can be sure of, it's that nothing is more powerful than a young boy's wish. Except an Apache helicopter. An Apache helicopter has machine guns AND missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive complement of weaponry, an absolute death machine.

went to fix what i thought was a broken thermostat to find out there was no thermostat at all lol. i guess after the previous owner over heated he got a little freeked out and didn't want to risk it happening again. unfortunatly i wasn't getting any heat. thought i was going to have to do a flush but the coolant was nice minty green. now with the thermostat in she runs on the line before 210. nice heat. even after idleing for awhile doesn't go over 210. now i guess i'll have to wait until it warms up to see if it stays like that. put in some fresh spark plug wires. bought a new valve cover gasket. about to order the 4.5 inch rough country x series lift with some wheel spacers and a fresh steering stabalizer. planing on taking advantage of their extra 10% off offer if you make a video review of what you got. bought a bunch of flat black paint to do a two tone paint job. shes red right now. top half's clearcoat is totally shot and paints down right gone in a few spots. ordered dynomax catback and a new downpipe after the exhaust manifold. planning on eliminating my cat since i won't be going back to emissions. picking up a replacement passenger tail light and replacing cracked front passenger side turn signal lenses. gonna nightshade those. got pre cut tints comming. big things going on

I know what you mean, especially this one cuz it is so clean, runs great, drivetrain is all stock. I've actually kept and cleaned up everything I've changed, bumpers, roof rack, door handles, stock suspension.

Anxious to see how the paint turns out, goodluck

I won't be trimming much, really it'll just be the little piece behind the stock bumper end caps, trim the flares off based on where the new bumper sits, and by trimming the flares, off comes the air dam.
