any F-150 8.8 should work

youll need to swap over the gears and traction lok but otherwise the housing should be the same

Though the f-150 rear will work the Lightning specific rear is beefier.

I have a complete Lightning rear with a detroit locker and moser axles for sale, only, I am in CT and not willing to ship it.

Well, just got a f150 housing for his truck only to realize that the housing was about 5" longer and the spring mounts are way off. 383svt what would you be looking to get for that rear??

i was told you couldn't put a detroit locker in the lightning rear end b/c of the speed sensor?? did you do something to yours??

There is no problem using a Detroit Locker in the Lightning Rear.

the housing is lightning specific, due to the reinforcement ribs in the center section
