Finding a whole center section is far easier than trying to swap the gears only. You might as well try to find an 8.8 while you are at it. It is a direct swap.

This is only the inside of the differential without the ring gear.

No.. sorry but post your axle code so people know what ratio you need.
most likely 3.27 or 3.08

If you decide to buy the gears separately you will have to pay a shop to install them in your pumpkin. If you buy a whole pumpkin you can do it yourself in your driveway in a few hours.
