What different years of 8.8 rear ends fit our car for a direct swap? Do new edge ones fit? Newer? Etc.. I've heard the 2011 fits but something needs changing on it. Any info here would be nice since an older one may be easier to find for me

You have to get a rear end from a 2005+. It doesn't matter whether it is a 2005 or 2012 (or 2013 which will be out soon). They all mount the same way; it is just with the 2011+ the flange is the same for the 2007 V6 so you don't have to change to the cobra flange.
You can't get a rear end for the earlier years. They are a 4 link mount, we have a 3 link.
