    I have a 90 with 33s and may to to 35s with 10Bs and 3.08s I want to put 4.10s in it but in the stock crap so I was thinking about a 12b but heard that that they have a weak pinion so what about a 14B SF I have not heard any thing bad about them then I found thes 8 to 6 lug adapter from Echobit 8 to 6 lug adapter and if that would work then I could have a 14b FF in the rear.

    The reason I dont want to go 1ton is that I have 2 nice set of 6 lug rims and this blazer is not going to see any real hard stuff maybe alittle mud no rocks.

    I am going to build another one for that

    what do yall think about the SF or FF with adapter

    Thanks

    SF would probably be easier and you wouldn't need an adapter if you can find a six-lug setup.

    Lockers and gears are a little more expensive for the SF though so try to pick one up with the right ratio.

    Personally I'd go with the 14 Bolt FF and the adaptors. Doing that will also space the rear tires out more so they'll line up with the fronts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif The FF is stronger then a SF in my opinion anyways. If you'll have to change gears up front, might be cheaper to upgrade to a 3/4 Ton front with the 8 lugs. Then you'd just need to get different wheels.
