I pulled an 8.8 from a '97 Exploder, it had 3.73's, LSD, and disks. Only 140k on it too. I stripped her down, welded in my tubes and got an Artec truss for it. The truss is awesome, REALLY happy with it. It installed easily and all the instructions made sense. If you can read, you can install this truss easily.
I re-used my old brake lines, (just re-flared and bent them) and purchased an extension for my soft line to make sure I wasnt pulling on my brake lines when I flexed.
ALL of the brake components were interchangeable; pads, rotors, calipers, e-brake components, everything. I was able to use the existing e-brake cables from my ZJ as well.
With the amount of lift I was running I didnt have to resize my driveshafts. I used the stock Exploder flange and bought U-joints that adapted from the 8.8 axle to my ZJ driveshaft.
I set my pinion angle to about 13 degrees for my 5" of lift
Topped it all off with a Solid dif cover, filled her up, and that was that.
