Ford 8.8 Swap Tutorial?

Anybody got a step by step or video on exact what's needed to swap in an 8.8 for a 35? Also, I have ABS. Will I lose that with an 8.8?

There are a ton of build threads on here and on the internet in general that show you what is needed. If you can weld then it isn't too hard. If you can't you may want to look at getting someone else do it. And I believe you will lose your ABS.

I had read that early on and it may have a solution to my sway bar interference issue with my truss bridge by trimming off about an inch of the passenger side
