its the Ford 8.8", just so you dont go running around looking for an 8.5" lol
yes they are the same width as far as i know
and no specific years that i can think of... the newer the better obviously, lower miles most likely, less wear... maybe someone can help me out?
edit: i think we confused the server, it thinks bryan was the last one to post haha
anyways, over all, i dont see a reason to kepe the 7.5. the 8.8 is stronger, and in im opinion swapping an axle is easier than swapping a ring and pinion
R.I.P. Dirty Debby. I miss that truck
New truck sports a chrome "C" on the fenders.
