    Some one told me today that a 80's toyota front and rear ends are stronger the 10BOLTS know I know 10bolts arnt extremely stong(espically the rear) But I know they will handle a mild SB where I think you put a toy axle in a fullsize with a mild SB hooked to it your gonna pull out chunks of metal am I wrong? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    perhaps i should clarify that.

    A hot "mild" toy set-up is a D44/12B set up. they add the full width, loose the birfields, get chevy parts that you can find in any junk yard, and add serious beef.

    so a 10B, while not as desirable, is comprible to a D44 or 12B, so that person, in my not so humble opinion, is talking out of his arse.

    In a rear app, a toy axle w/ V6 3rd is way stronger than a 10b and stronger than a 44. In a front app, i'd call it a toss-up stock, and give the nod to the toy with a High-pinion 3rd and some marfields. I know a lot of people who wheel toys, and the birfields get a bad rap.

    <font color="green"> I disagree, The Toy axles are a toss up strengthwise in stock form, and with some beefing they will tand up to 38s pretty easily for all but the most wild wheeling. Granted they are under a lighter truck than 10 bolts, but the Birfield thing is easily remedied. Seems like people were putting 12 bolts and 44s in them for a little while, but then the Toy aftermarket stepped up and made it worth it to beef the stock axles. Full width isn't even something that everyone wants. </font>

    What's even cooler is the fact that All Pro Offroad offers Toyota/D60 hybrid axles now. Sure, they're 4 grand, but it'd be almost impossible to break in a Toyota.
