    its really a short and simple question....have any of yall ever thought of using Moser Racing Axle shafts to beef up your axles. I am planning on eventually running about an 8 inch lift and 40's or the biggest tire i can fit.


    thanks for your input ck5

    the easiest way to beef up your rear end is to spend 50 bucks and buy a 14 bolt. then spend a lil more, replace seaks, bearings, brakes and move the perches. Its the only way to go with 40's. your asking for troubles with a 10/ 12 bolt

    The 12 bolt rear even with Superior shafts (better then Moser) is only really good to 37" tires under heavy use. The front 10 bolt is really only good to about the same. This is especially true if you are using the truck hard in stuff like rockcrawling.

    If you want to run 40's and want to run it hard then you should just invest in 1 ton stuff. 40" tires under hard use can break even Dana 60 stubshafts and maybe more. The D60 is alot more apt to handle the abuse then the 10 bolt. If you can break the 14bff rear with 40's then you are in a league with some pretty elite company.

    I you decide to go to the 1 ton club, I gots a 60 that I really need to get rid of. I've been to San Angelo, and I know there are 14ffs in the yard down there. While your at those yards, I need some parts for my 62 4wd Suburban....lol

    Ive seen a video on here of a guy wheeling in the rocks....one rear tire started spinning real fast....then the other one locked up...and bam! Broken 14ff shaft. Must have been a gov-lock though....cause my detroit wont let one tire spin for very long before it locks up. It did look like the side that broke....the tire turned abot a full revolution before you could hear it snap.:eek1: Those are some strong shafts. But hell, I know a place where they have a box of about 500 twisted up broken rockwell 2.5 and 5 ton shafts. They look like if you were to take a hot dog and twist it in your hands till it breaks....yeah :eek1: :eek1: :eek1:
