cobalt327 You're right, I was confusing the 8.2 10-bolt w/the 8.5. My mistake.

big gear head As far as I know there is no 3.55 for the 8.5 10 bolt either. The pinion gear is very hard and simply turning it down will not be easy. Even with a carbide cutter it will be very hard to do. Grinding it will take a lot of time. You could use a 8.8 Ford rear end.

BOBCRMAN@aol.com "Turn down" the pinion gear. Not a simple task. Did one on my crank grinder once.

Never turned down a car pinion to fit a truck diff, but there's 3.42 gear sets for the 12-bolt truck, that's less than a 4% difference.

You might want to consider using a corporate 10-bolt rearend housing and diff if you just have to have the 3.55, the 10-bolt has the same diameter pinion as the car 12-bolt as I'm sure you know. That is a strong rearend, especially using 30 spline axles.
