If I had to rate the improvement/change per modification to the steering/suspension - this would be at the top of the list:

1. 2016 steering gear
2. OUO ALAs
3. Traction blocks.

I hope that helps put things into perspective.

Theres a reason the box costs so much. Its not junk like the 600$ turds on the 99-04 stuff. I realize the deficiency in the boxes but ive never had the issues others do. If I wasnnt running around on 36-40x 14.5&15.50 on 12 wides from 00-09 my stock box would still be on mine.

I like the idea of the oem box over the redhead as thry arent a one and done type deal. They should be however for what they cost.

I'm not complaining about the price, just posting up for others.

I plan to order on once I get back to working on my Ex. Just gotta get these 6.0 out of my shop first.

There was a change in 2008, so unless there is another change, this gearbox would be the same. Precision, did you look at the two boxes side by side? I went to rock auto and can get a A1 Cardone for about 400 and a motocraft one is 1100, both are reman.

The prefix would suggest it's a later part. The 08-10 boxes were 8C3Z iirc.

Yes. I had taken side-by-side photos with intentions of posting them here. Unfortunately, I lost the photos.

The 2016 box is visually larger. You don't even need to see it next to the other box to notice; bluntly obvious. I noticed just laying underneath the 2016 and looking at the box installed. That is what led to the experiment of swapping the boxes.

I have no idea. A quick search online reveals there's a couple different options.
