we get ours from a junk yard and have a jig to put the mounts on it and you need a 58 in. look around for guys with old ford pickup box trailers we do that all the time we take it and give them a metric rear end and put it under it for um and usually give um some cash

An 8.8 will have a differential cover,A 9" has a bolt in carrier in the back of the housing.The 8" is made the same way but is a little smaller.

The 9" carrier kind of raps around or covers the bottom 2 bolts on the housing, 8" is a little smaller but the bolts are totaly uncovered all the way around the housing where the carrier housing bolts too it.
