Rear end question needed ASAP!

Alright well heres my trucks plans. 4inch rough country lift and 33's.

Now i know i want a 8.8 rear end and i found one with these specs.

8.8 out of an explorer 31 spline 355 posi with disc brakes

Heres a pic of it.



He is asking 200 obo. Is that a good price? I plan on pulling the diff cover off and checking it all out. It will get a rockcrusher diff cover and maybe some internals as my friends dad owns the company.

Let me know cause that may come home tomorrow with me on the trip to pull a part.

I didn't even notice that. He needs to be running AT LEAST 4.10 gears. 3.55s is WAYYYY to high.
