Nope. I always have wanted to learn. Custom fabrication is very cool!
If you could, or had a friend that could, the easiest/least$$$ cure to your problem would be the following.

1. Weld the tubes to the center section on the 8.8

2. Install a true track

3. Install a diff cover with a girdle

4. Install under the axle style traction bars.

In your situation this would bring your 8.8 up to be plenty strong enough to survive in your application.

Get the stuff used and you could probably pull all that off for around $300

Didnt Crazed just built a sweet 9inch rear diff for his rig recently?
Yes.

But refer back to post number 29. Crazed does not have to worry about said banker. He spent quite a chunk of change on that axle as I recall. Nodular 3rd, discs, alloy shafts, the works.

A Lincoln 9 inch with disc brakes is not designed for a full size rig. They are a small bearing axle and 28 spline shaft in most cases. They are also narrower than a truck axle.

I am getting it in IE everytime I visit page 3 of this thread. I no longer use IE for surfing since I switched to firefox. I wonder if it is something with superford, wonder if it is linked pictures?

Eagle Forged 4340 Steel H-Beam Connecting Rods

how are you calling this a single profile cam? yeah the advertised is the same.. but @50 it clearly shows it's a more aggressive ramp rate on the exhaust side.

also i'm jealous that you've got 6.2" rods (even if you're rod ratio is still only 1.55)

Looks sweet. (and very expensive, but should cover your needs and really hold up well)

I like the currie name plate on the back of the housing. You should have had them do something special like FSB's 9"!! LOL

Let us know when you get it installed and how you like it.

This is a Currie Custom 9", not a Currie Crate or RockJock. With the F9 Housing, Back Brace, WaveTrac and 9+ Third Member, $4600.00+.

Admittedly, most would not need a rear end of this caliber. But along with the new high torque 408 Stroker, this is the foundation of my build. More to come...
