you can build up the rear you already have. theres guys that a running in the 8's with a built 8.8. just get some guys, and some type of diff. and strengthen it up. weld the tubes, had some 31 spline axles, a reinforced diff cover the sky's the limit really. the 9's are nice but it'll cost you, and you already have a rear just need to finish it. you can really just had gears, and locker and be done also.

Sounds like the gears are not all that is missing. Seems that you also don't have a differential. You can build that 8.8 with all new parts. You could also shop around for used stuff. There are a lot of people selling their used parts to upgrade to something else. There is a classified section on this board and you can also look on craigslist, ebay and racingjunk for good used parts.

You set up a 8.8 pretty nice that will be enough for your projected numbers.
