First you should use the search bar to find the numerous 8.8 swap threads on this forum. I think there's one near the bottom of page 1 of this forum too btw.

Second you should read this thread at least 3 times: 8.8 FACTS, OPINIONS & HOW-TO'S (F.A.Q.) - JeepsUnlimited.com Forums

I assure you that that thread has all of the info you will need.

If you need clarification or advice on anything then ask away.

But research first.

I also would recommend finding an 8.8 with disc brakes. They're just as common as 8.8's with drums and will only add about $60 to your total cost if you do the brake setup the way I describe here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/fo...ml#post9668944
