Default Looking for 8.8 axle for tj swap or front and rear combo

Need a 8.8 rearend out of explore
I have a 98 tj I am putting a full traction long arm lift on and plan on upgrading the rear with a 8.8 at the same time.
Stock gearing ratio is 373 but do plan on running 37s so will need to upgrade front Dana 30 and gear sets also!

How soon do you need one? I have a 2003 TJ here right now with a 8.8 already installed so it has all the brackets already to bolt into another TJ. I just did not have any plans yet on when the Jeep is going to get taken apart. Jeep was crashed in the front so it will be parted out one of these days. PM being sent also

I have an 8.8 with all brackets cut off and no brakes unfortunately, but $100 and it's yours. I also have a Ford D44 with Moser chromoly shafts, all new wheel bearings and races, new spindles, spindle bearings and seals, new spindle lock nuts and washers, 5.89 gears welded diff. Also a Ford 9" with same gears, chromoly shafts, disc brake conversion done with Chevy brakes on it. Oh yeah brand new lockouts in front also. Want $1000 for those 2 axles they are coming out of my rig now. Also have a D44 hp Ford and the matching D60 out of a 79' F-250 $350 for both.

I hope to get under mine this weekend and start taking it apart so I will know better what gear ratio it is. I do not think it has a SYE but the drive shaft can be included.

OK the one I have is 3:73 with disc brakes. It is still bolted in the jeep so needs to be removed. That probably would not take to long. I will include the drive shaft but it is not a SYE. I will pm you more info.
