I've seen some 8.8 that have an offset diff. It doesn't look to be more than 3'' is this an issue when swapping or are all the 8.8 offset?

I'm pretty sure they are all offset, at least everyone I've pulled out of an Explorer....and the offset does not make any difference as far as installation is concerned.

The one I pulled out of the 97 explorer is for sure offset. Not sure how that would affect a stock driveshaft, it might cause chatter with lift. I have an AA SYE kit though so in theory I should experience zero driveline issues. If you have one then you're set.

Its not enough to even make a difference with a stock driveshaft. The first 8.8 I put in went into a '93 Sahara with stock DS, and I had no issues with vibrations.
