Re: Installed the Yukon Super 88 C clip eliminator kit today on my Ford 8.8

RCP, I did the swap for a couple of reasons, one of the main ones was 1. To solve some of the problems the 8.8 has with C clip axles and my e-locker , then of course the benefits of 2. To increase the strength of the axles to 4340 chrome molly. 3. To allow me to get off the trail if so brake an axle and could be days from home. With the wheeling and trails that I do with my friends, I have seen a number of snapped rear axles. I usually have spare axles, but I am trying to cut down on carrying so much weight and crap in my rig. You are 100% right, the caliper for the rear disk brakes will hold in the axle for a little while, but not when the trail has a day or even longer to get out of it. (We were just up on the Dusey Ershim for three days ) I got a screaming good deal on the kit, and thought I would try it out!
