    10 bolts and 35\" tires?

    10 bolts ok with 35" tires?

    I plan on locking the rear. Probably lock-right.

    Should I up grade the shafts, or not go so big on the tires?

    The 1 tons will come .........later. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    You should be fine w/ 35's and 10's---just don't be friendly w/the go pedal in the rough stuff--keep up w/ the maintenence on the axle shafts and berings and they should live a happy life---IMO if you MUST get a drop in locker get a lock rite--not an ez locker (expecially in the rear) heard many horrer stories and seen one my self about the EZif you can afford it get the full carrier detroit for strength purposes----what year bronco might i ask----you've made a wise decision w/ the Jimmy----I like the older broncos though and welcome /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Im running 10 bolts with a Gov-Lock rear and 35's. And I beat the sh!t out of my truck and they havent given me any greif, well not yet anyways. Just the Gov-Lock doesnt always want to engage. But other than that you'll be fine.

    Ive got 33's w/ my 10 bolt and a full Detroit in the rear and I used to jump the truck at Pismo. Of course this was before I blew the old Gov-loc up and needed to replace the axle shafts and put in the Detroit /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
    Don't jump it and don't bind them up while on the throttle and you should be okay. You should be fine in the mud, sand, and snow, the rocks might be a bit much.

    DONT GET THE LOCK RIGHT!
    I broke one of these units' shear pins.
    But nothing else inmy axle. Just the unit itself broke. I have 4.56 and 35's and have done some decent wheelin' nothing hardcore and its stood up to everything ive thrown at it so far.
