    Ok this is for a friend. He wants to buy a 10 bolt off me to use in his desert race truck. He wants a spool and gears lower than 5.13's. I know I can get the spool for him, but will the C-Clip eliminator work in a desert racing application. Also are there gears lower than 5.13's available for a 10 bolt.
    Thanks in advance.

    Go back to the 9 inch vs. 14FF and look at the yellow Ford pic that I posted and then come back and take a while guess how much that full size weighs fully loaded. You're not in the neighborhood at 3200.

    Hey zcar, is that axle going into a S-10?
