8.8 is not a vaild search term, you can't just search numbers. Try "ford 8.8" or something, and you'll find things, constrain the search to the tech forums to make sure you're not getting other junk.

Here's a writeup I did last winter: http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthread.php?t=80682
If it's for a TJ, http://www.stu-offroad.com/axle/8.8axle/8.8axle-1.htm That was a loose guide for when I did mine, should work well for you as well.

You are not searching for just (.)'s.
