I'm in the cherry hill area and need a 8.8 rebuilt and slapped into a yj.

Thanks for any recommendations.

what year engine, jeep,
what parts are you missing?
carb or fuel injected?
How much did you plan on spending.
exhaust needed also?

oops

are you talking 8.8 REAR or 8.8 LITER?

think he is think for 8.8 rear.. and on a yj it is fairly simple.. only need a couple leaf mounts and two shock mounts and your done.. not like a tj or newer which is a pain in the ***..

I thought the spring perchs needed to move slightly so the leaf center bolt goes in the hole.

I cannot rebuild the axle, but I can install it.

Does it actually need re-building?

I need someone that can weld and set up gears. Can you do that or know anyone that knows what they are doing in the south jersey area?
