I was recently out on a trail trip and on the way back on the paved road doing 50mph my rear end locked up and sent me into a uncontrolled slide. Luckily I was able to not hit anything but the 7.5 rear end is toast. I have a chance at an 8.8 and was wondering if it was a direct bolt in or if I would have to do some modifications. the vehicle is a 94 ranger 4x4 v6 3.0L. I would like to upgrade to an 8.8 beings it is stronger and when I decide to do 35's and my locker it would be a little safer than the 7.5 thanks for the help guys.
