Ford 8.8 Installation
Hello, I am ditching the Dana 35 out of my 2004 TJ and purchasing a Ford 8.8 from East Coast Gear Supply. Anyone in the Indy area done this and can offer help with the installation? Any advice? I'm primarily concerned with connecting the brake lines. I would love to have a nice locker, but cannot afford the extra cost, so I selected a rebuilt limited slip. Also, I don't plan to install adjustable upper control arms or SYE.

Build Sheet:

Adpater Flange/Yoke Option: 1310 Adapter Flange (+$35.00)
Suspension Lift: 0"-2"
Shaft Options: Good Used Shafts
ADD POSI: Rebuilt Factory Limited Slip (+$150.00)
Driveshaft Style : NON CV- STOCK
Brake Options: New Calipers/Pads/Ebrake Shoes/Rotors (+$180.00)
Reman Unit with New Gears: F8.8- 4.56 (+$535.00)
FINISH: Flat Black

Is it still a c clip axle? I almost went this route in my 2000 TJ but I didnt want a c clip axle. I found a dana 44 out of a 01 TJ for $800 and put in an arb and 4.88's

im pretty sure ECGS puts on a bolt where you can mount your stock 8.8 brakeline. if not you can just drill a hole and use a 7/16-20 tap to use the breather out of your dana 35 and bolt it up. i just built a 8.8 with the artec truss over Christmas break. PM if have and any more questions.

The time now is 07:58 PM.
