Why such a deep ratio? If you're really serious, swap over a D35 TTB and 8.8 from an Explorer. Many, many more options with that setup and it's almost a direct swap. It's been a while since I did mine but I think the front driveshaft might be slightly different. Otherwise it's a pretty bolt in affair.
