    is it worth $100.00 bucks to get a 12 bolt to replace my 10 that has a factory limited slip? Oh yeah the 12 has a mini spool also.

    id do it, easy as pie putting it in and you get a little more strength, and peice of mind. I'd also treat it like the 10 bolt cause it has the spool in it so you basically even it out on strength if you know what i mean

    Might take into consideration, is it the same gear ratio? if it is, then go for it.

    Keep it simple!

    Does the 12 bolt have stock axles?If they are stock I dont think they will last long with the spool.
