    im just wondering if i get a ford T-lok differential and new gears, do i just have to swap them out with the stock components, or is there other work that needs to be done when installing these things:

    Not so much "swapping" because its not direct replacement, but its pretty close.

    You would notice a dramatic increase in 0-60 times, especially if you had better tires.

    You'd need to get someone who knew what they are doing to do the swap. If you buy the gears and T-Lok you'll have all of the parts needed. You are also going to need a tuner to calibrate your speedo after the swap.

    yes, it might say 4.11 gears on the tuner, but thats close enough.

    If you were to do it yourself, you might need a special too to set the pinion depth, not sure.

    Brodude2002, adding tlok will have no effect on what size wheels/tires you can run.

    Im really starting to wonder about the idea of putting in a T-Lok and gears. Most estimates dont give our rear end taking much more than 300 lbs of torque before twisting.. and I dont like that. Im starting to think it may be better to hold off and find an 8.8" with T-lok standard. I guess well see though.. patience, patience, patience.

    300 lbs of torque is quite a large number, thats about 100 more than stock (rear wheel torque).

    as long as it was an 8.8, some old 5.0s (like my 83) came with a 7.5 posi.
