Take it to a shop and have it done. The 8.8 requires a case spreader to get the diff in and out, plus getting everything shimmed just right is loads of fun... it's well worth the money to let some professionals that KNOW what they're doing do it for you and know that it's been done right. Get the gears set up a couple thousandths too deep or too shallow and you'll burn them up in less than 1000 miles. I know this from experience.
