    I blew my 10 bolt (and trans) by rocking thruogh the gears... it was my first time stuck and I was up to the doors in snow. The carrier (differential) for the ring will crack in half and it will fall out when the diff cover is taken off. Go with a 14 bolt or Dana 60.

    If it isn't broke, then soop it up!!
