Got my 8.8 in.

I actually got it in on Thanksgiving, I have some pictures, but I have to get them from my buddy cause my camera died.

It wasn't pain free, not one bit, my favorite part was when the driveshaft wouldn't go back in.

But now shes done, hindsight, should have done it two years ago, the 3.73s are perfect with the 302, the disc brakes are incredible, the fact I can rip both tires without being scared of breaking anything is the best.

So, if welding is holding you back from doing the 31 spline expo swap, don't let it, you wont regret it!

I'll add pics as soon as I get them.
