Well, my budget Ford 8.8 axle swap has, at this point, not counting labor, cost approx. $2,000.00. That's $200 for a junk yard Explorer 8.8 axle, $75 for a set of mounting hardware to fit the Jeep, $200 for a set of Ford SVO 4.10 gears, $100 for a master install kit for the gears, $530 for a Superior Super 88 kit (HD chrome moly axles with C clip eliminators), $725 for an ARB air locker, and $200 for extended brake lines and all new disc brake parts. Should be one bullet proof axle, though!
