Theres about 1/8" more material on the chromolly ears than the stock shafts. And once I got them out I looked at them and they look to be just stock TJ shafts. So if anyone needs a driver side shaft let me know

Does your 8.8 have a C-clip eliminator? If not you won't need bearings for the alloys...they are pressed into the axle tubes...
