08 Axle Swap

I got a leed on a complete chassis with axles and all for decent price near by. Is there any difference with this set up than the 05-07 set up that everyone uses. Or is there something I should look for or measure when I go to look at on Sunday

Slightly Bigger brakes on 08+, slightly skinnier with different offset wheels, 11 models have electric locking rear!, 08+ have longer rear leafs that will require more measuring to install. 05+ are longer also but only on the shackle side of the leaf. Front eye to center axle is the same

Good luck, as for finding one locally at a good price, i drive 12hrs to pick up mine

I thought the gears where higher in the 08 like 3.31s but the guy told me 3.73s. I'm going to see what it is when I get it
