Yah, I only run about 6-7 lbs. on the trails. I only paid like $450 for it. Which is actually cheaper than some of the name brand bumpers out there right now. The rear fenders are Smittybilt.

Don't have a good shot of the axle under the rig but I run it with 35" km2 and an ARB.

I went with M.O.R.E's kit for my ford 8.8 and it worked out great. and as it seems everyone else has I also go the solid axle dif cover. Im currently running 35" Tires on it. The jeep is in a current build stage so havent really driven long distances on it. I plan on getting the super 88 axle shafts for it, Ive heard it makes the 8.8 laugh at 37" tires on the trail.

East coast gear supply offers brackets for the 8.8
FORD 8.8 TJ BRACKET SWAP KIT
i ordered my axle complete from there. i ended up paying more compared to if i did it myself but its also professionally done which couldnt be said about my work so the ends justify the means.
i will be running 35in interco's with 4.88 (pics to come later)

Any one running bigger than 37's on the 8.8, Ive seen on a couple sites that with a super 88 kit that axle will laugh at 37s.
