I bought both of mine on ebay. A lockright in the front definitely makes turning in 4x4 a lot more interesting

You can't find a Ford 8.8 locker anywhere?

I find that hard to believe. You try Randy's Ring and Pinion?

Waht all do you have to change when going from 3.55 (open) to 4.88 (locked)? I know the gears and locker but am I missing anything? BTW, sorry for the totally rediculous question, i am thinkin and tired so yea.

Up front you'll need a new carrier for the Dana 44. Not so for an 8.8 rear end. If anyone is interested, I've got a clutch-type limited slip Dana 44 30-spline unit for sale. Just PM me.

Bigger is not necessarily better.

You'll need a different carrier for the numerically larger gear ratio, a 4.88 ring and pinion and a locker. You'll also need some one that knows how to setup gears. Each of the parts will be needed for front and rear since you cant have 4.88's in one diff and 3.55's in another

Well here is the deal, I bought a solid front D44 with 4.88 and a detroit limited slip (it also has everything but steering). My winter project is to finish her axle-wise, I also figured that I might as well do it right the first time so that is why I am locking the rear. I was just tryin to think if I am missing anything.

If the front is set up right you'd need someone to setup up a new carrier with a locker and 4.88 gears for the rear

No carrier break in the 8.8 so if goin lunchbox just get new gears and the locker and take it to a shop.

Except if you have a limited slip diff, you'll need an open diff carrier for a lunchbox locker. A lunchbox locker is too large to fit into the carrier of a limited slip carrier.

Bigger is not necessarily better.

No, you don't need different gears for a locker. The gears wouldn't need to be changed, but a lunchbox locker (which replaces the spider gears in the carrier) is too large to fit into the carrier that housed a limited slip. The opening is too small. However, a carrier that housed an open differential has a larger opening and a lunchbox locker can fit into it.

So for an 8.8, you can put any gear ratio onto any carrier, but you will need an open diff carrier to put a lunchbox locker in it. This is pretty typical of most axles.

For the Dana 44 front, not only would you need an open carrier in order to install a lunchbox locker, but in addition there are also two different carriers available: 1 for 3.92+taller gear sets and 1 for 3.92+shorter gear sets. That makes four typical carriers available for a D44: >3.92 open, >3.92 limited slip, <3.92 open, <3.92 limited slip.

Bigger is not necessarily better.

Thanks for clearing that up Tommy. I thought the 8.8 was like the D44 and D60

The "getting new gears" was directed at B-rad. He said he had 4.88 in his new D44 so he would need new gears in the rear to match.
