Default Blown Rear-diff :'(

So I blew out my rear diff doing snow doughnuts in a parking lot up a local mountain a while ago.. Had some issues with my rear-end (no homo) ever since i've had the truck so i'm just gonna replace the whole rear end. I believe its an 8.8 26-spline w/ 3.73 gears correct?? Found one for $250 bucks all ready to go 80,000k on it. Just have to swap the drums from my truck.

gears all depends on your particular truck and vin but id say for that year you would be correct, but beens your 4x4 you def need to make sure its the same as the front before doing it all. Also itll be a 28 spline 8.8 too.

80 thousand THOUSAND miles? Sounds like you're getting ripped off.

Check the axle code on the door and compare it to the chart in the technical section before you get an axle so you get the right one. The front and back gear ratios have to match.
