    As for the 8.8 and disc brakes, you could do a disc swap on the 8.25. Thats what I'm doing

    Unless you know how to set up the gears for backlash I'd do what lemon said. Full axle swap with the LSD and the disc brakes.

    I wasnt suggesting he do the gears or limited slip himself unless he knew what he was doing. I was just throwing out options. I plan on paying someone to install limited slip when I get it

    I cannot do a full axle swap at the moment due to a few reasons. so that is fully out of the question. I'd be getting my uncle to help me out as he has helped my in the past install gears into the fam friends XJ. He will be helping me with my swap.
