A ZF6 would be ideal, I believe. The rear end can probably handle the 5.4L stock, but with performance mods, I might be worried. What gear ratio does your 8.8 have?

I'd love to see this done,...

That truck is beautiful. I agree with the above. Keeping it as Ford made it is a good idea to maintain its value. Definitely keep it out of the snow! Congrats on your purchase!

Yep, the big block tranny won't work. $75 is unbelieveably cheap for a ZF5. I'd be tempted to buy it and flip it for some extra cash (!)..... if I had a place to put it.

If your stock 5-speed...

The shift rail plugs and shifter pivot cover are both known to leak. If either is leaking, they are not too hard to fix. There's a link on this site (I think) regarding the shift rail plugs leaking...

May I ask about how many miles were/are on the engine & transmission?

Best wishes.
