If someone who has been faced with this decision could give me some advice, i would really appreciate it. I have the stock front and rear 1/2 ton axles for my 78. Ive heard different oppinions on what to do. I would like to beaf up the axles. Weld gussets, etc. to ensure that it is bullet proof. Should i scratch that idea, and just swap out to 3/4 ton to 1 ton axles? Also, will i be able to beef up the front 1/2 ton axles any at all? Thanks for your help.
