Because you don't have a locking differential. Get one of those, and you'll be smoking both. Think AM has ehm for sale, or you can just swap to a GT rear end for the same effect. Someone correct me if i'm wrong, not 100% sure on that.

Upgrade your rear diff and get some bigger diff. gears and you're good to go!

The 8.8 is much stouter than the 7.5 so if price is negligible, you want the 8.8.

if you aren't putting down serious power there is no need too. The 7.5 can take a beating.

If it's the same price, why wouldn't you?

it's not always the same price, in some instances it's cheaper in other's it's more expensive. It all depends on the seller and the mileage on the axle. Obviously you wouldn't buy one that has a lot of mileage on it. So, in most instances, my guess would be it's cheaper to go the LSD route rather than upgrade to an 8.8 with 100k miles on it. Or maybe that's just me...

I agree with you 100% crowned I wouldn't want to risk taking a chance on a whole different rear when I know what mine has been through, the exact mileage on it, and the fact that it hasn't had any problems... I think the 8.8 is needless and only necessary if I knew all those factors and the price was the same

you can get a 7.5in rear tlok like OEM used in rangers, but they can break (7.5 is weak) so an 8.8 is a safer way to go

The 7.5 really isn't week unless you're putting down serious hp like middle 300s

His point is that the 8.8 is stronger than the 7.5.

You guys that push the gt rears never wanna acknowledge the faults... Both can break and both are equally as likely unless you are over 300 hp

To be honest id go with an 8.8...you can find used ones for cheap. Comparing the two is like apples to oranges....for the price you spend on a tlok with gears you could of bought a used 8.8...gears..and had cash left over for install

Thats fine you wouldn't put it in without opening it up for the gear change anyways..so while in there all seals can be replaced. New gasket and some new fluid with a friction modifyer...

exactly. Fact is the 7.5 can hold up just as good as the 8.8 otherwise people wouldn't be running it. If you are running your car like an animal then you can say bye bye to either one. But most people don't so that is why it is ok to stick with an 7.5

I doubt a 7.5 would last one launch in my car. My 8.8 hasn't missed a beat and I abuse it.

I forget some of you guys are young so maybe it doesn't make sense. But after a good while you'll see that when someone asks for a part idea, and get bombarded by certain types of posts it can influence their choice. Luckily there's enough sense in this forum to mention the 8.8 which both stock for stock and modded will out handle the 7.5..

Ok, Im just going to say it now: you have no idea what you're talking about. Do some research. I had a 7.5 and now have an 8.8. The 7.5 will break long before the 8.8. Why do you think the V6s & GTs differed? Just to change things up? The 8.8 can handle more torque and the 7.5 is cheaper.

I just think it's funny you guys always wanna push what YOU think is right without any data to prove it... You guys are the joke and the ones not offering more than one option... Both are fine 8.8 in the long run is better if you find a good one at a good price but it much easier and safer to just stay with the 7.5

Where is YOUR research that validates the 7.5 breaking before the 8.8? I guarantee you a high mileage 8.8 will break before a lower mileage 7.5 with the same rear diff gears. It's just what makes sense. I personally would not take the risk of buying an 8.8 rear end I know nothing about(as in how it was treated) off of someone or a salvage yard, especially if it came off a vehicle with high miles.

reading this i can tell both of you are on your first cars not poking fun just making an observation. Over time you'll get it

in the end run a 7.5 or 8.8...doesn't matter to me in the slightest because it's not my car. OP's question has been answered so no need to further this thread unless he has another question.

I just think you guys are funny because you orovide no backing to what you say... I had a mechanic of over 25 years way more experience then both of y'all tell me for the plans I had for my car either rear was just as good and since mine had low mileage to just stick with the 7.5 but believe what you guys want haha
