Is there a FW 8.8 wth disc brakes?

hey guys

Is there any f150's that have disc brakes on there 8.8 rear? Also, do they have the Speed Sensor in the housing that I need for my speedo?

Thanks

i think in 2000-2002 ish there are some f150s with 8.8s and disc brakes.

Now what you could do is buy a 90-96 F150 with the 8.8 and put the disc brakes from an explorer on it. i think that will work. both 31 spline axles.
