If you do swap out your axle, keep us posted and post pics (perhaps create a "how to" thread)

Okay for all the nay sayers saying that you cant get a 3.08LS are wrong. MY 96gt had 3.08 gear with LS. More then likely that 8.8 came off a mustang. 4.0 can easily push a 3.08 gear. Its a highway gear though. My 98 currently has 3.45LS and it has the 3.0 and has plenty of power to turn my 27" tires. However they are right for you to comfortably run a 35" tire you need at minimum a 4.56.
