Ford 8.8 swap

hi, my dad has a 2000 auto 4.0 and im trying to talk him into putting a ford 8.8 in the rear. i have a few questions. first, how hard is it to put the 8.8 in (we arnt the greatest mechanics but we're working on that)? is there any welding or does it bolt straight on? also is there any kits that can help us?

thanks a lot,
Eric Miller

everything you need to know is here. It's not hard, just not easy either:

Search. An 8.8 won't bold right in because the Explorers you are most likely going to get it from have leaf springs in the rear. You'll need to weld on TJ axle brackets etc.
