I started with the 8.8 that it has, it was all rusty and it was weak. I ripped the guts out and had the housing blasted. I will be applying the top coat on the housing tomorrow.
I bought a Detroit Truetrac and a set of 3.55 Ford Racing gears, bought all new Ford Racing bearings as well. Have some new 31 spline axles and a Ford Racing differential cover.
