Good thing its only the spider gears! The housing and ring gear shows no damage.

That looks like the rear. What rear axle are you running? Did you check the shaft ends to see if they spun/twisted a little bit with that load/unload?

Just something to think about for down the road...

 

An 8.8 is a great upgrade, especially compared to a Dana 35. You'll quickly find, however, that the differential housing is a massive anchor in the rocks. Depending on the types of trails you intend to run, you may want to plan on upgrading to 35" tires shortly after installing the 8.8 in your Jeep. The larger tires will be a better match with the 4.88 gears too.

 

SCOT68 wheels with an 8.8 and 33" tires. He can tell you all about it. ;)
