What tranny do you have now? Do you want a manual or automatic 5.0? Personally, I'd do what the other member on here said and take a 5spd off a f150 and drill out the bell housing holes to mount to the 5.0 and then run manual shift f150 case. Might take a lil customizing to get it all in and working, but if you're going to be swapping in 5.0, you're gonna have to custom quite a few things as is.

Now for front axle, I would say you probably could leave yours alone, and maybe upgrade shafts to a stronger shaft since you don't use 4wd as much, and get some manual locking hubs. For the rear, I already told you, I would recommend the Expo 31 spline 8.8 with matching gears to what you have now, if not maybe upgrade to the next ratio up.

i want the power but i dont want it to cost me a arm and a leg. even thought i no its going to. i just hate my 3.0 now i would even settle for a 4.0 with 4.56 gearing every one loves there 4.0's i want the more power with out dropping $1,000,000 in to a 3.0. im not going to get rid of my truck.
