8.8" rear end swap

Thinking about scraping one from a junk yard soon and doing the swap. I know there have been threads on here in the past that talk about them but I'm just wondering if somebody can give me tips, extra parts/tools I'll need, anything helpful would be great

How how are you thinking the rear end will cost? Also, can I take it from 05-09 gt and 11-14 v6 and gt?

Just depends on gears that are in it and miles it has.

What year do you have ?

Yeah 11-14 rears are a direct swap but 05-10 rears you'll need the cobra pinion flange.

That is correct. If it comes from a 2011-14 it SHOULD have the correct pinion flange already, but double check. I know of one out if a 2012 that had to be swapped.
