    Hey!

    After towing two trucks at the same time this weekend (http://triadfoundry.com/richards_pictures/vehicles/tow2.jpg) on a 7 hour trip, I really want to find a 2-speed rear axle to replace the 4.10 14-bolt in my '77 Chevy rollback. It would have been nice to have some "in between" gears for the SM465. Were there any 2-speed axles offered that will fit (approx 63" WMS-WMS axle width and 8-lug)?

    I know I could put in a Gear Vendors overdive, but I can't justify that kind of money. If I can pick up a 2-speed axle cheaper, that would be cool.

    (I know this is off-topic since the truck is 2WD, but so many people here know SO much, and I DO use this truck to tow my Blazers and Suburbans). /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Thanks!
