Rear end swap

I guess this would be the right place for this? I'm thinking about swapping the 8.25 in my 95 Dakota for a 00 Ford 8.8. I've seen where others have done this but I don't remember where, and I'm being lazy 😂 Some things I do remember for this: 1) the left side axle of the 8.8 is longer than the right 2) conversion U-joints between the driveshaft to the axle 3) leaf spring mounts are different

So with all that, I'm considering swapping because I can possibly get 00 Explorer for CHEAP from work. That and rear disc brakes and 5 lugs.

Any other things I should keep in mind?
