1998 Mountaineer rearend swap

Has anyone ever swapped a 1998 mountaineer rearend onto a TJ? The rearend is off a 5.0 V8.

What axle is it?

You do know it is not going to bolt in, right?

The mounaineer will have the Ford 8.8 rearend, a popular swap. Do a search for it, but the swap requires all the Ford mounts to be cut off, and TJ mounts to be welded in place.

Should be the same as a regular 8.8 swap

Hey Guys (BlueFlame, 2GPS4ME, BrianCJ)

Thanks for the quick reply. I will have to go measure and do some further research on the Ford 8.8 swap. Again, thanks for the azmuith check!
