I took the easy or more expensive way out and had my fab guy do my 8.8 for me. So can't really say where it came from or how difficult the brackets were. Great axle so far. Only thing it needs is an aftermarket diff cover. The stock one is paper thin. Bounced onto a rock and had a leak the first time out.
I appreciate it. No, its not PSC. I made my own design using the idea of both a PSC stinger and an OR-Fab stinger then had it custom fabbed.

Custom fab prices range from a case of beer to actual $. Depends on your association with the guy who can fab.
The yellow Jeep has Xenon flat fenders.
And as stated above, before you put the 8.8 in, DEFINITELY get an aftermarket cover if you plan to do anything other than mall crawl. They're thin and bend easily, causing major problems if you don't notice it right away.

ok every one I picked my 8.8 up last night. Im planning on upgrading my rear suspension to a 4-link. I cant fab so im going to buy my truss and frame brackets from Claytons offroad. Did anyone get any other brackets for cheaper than more offroad? Ballistics are cheaper but arent angled.
