    Whats up everyone just wanted to share my tug of war story with all you . It was this past tuesday after work me and my cousin finally hooked our trucks up back to back tug of war with a 8 foot tow strap. I drive a 76 blazer with a 350 in it on 38 's . My cousin drives a 06 f 150 with a 5.4 on 35 's .All I can say is I love my blazer , it pulled that ford like it was a little quad or something . Wish I would have got it on film but it wasnt somthing that was planned.

    Well it's pretty apparent that you haven't a clue when it comes to talking about rear ends. If you think the only difference is 2 bolts then your dumber than the post that you made. Try back later when you get some smarts m'kay............

    Um just a little fyi, 2 bolts arent the difference. The difference is a ring gear that is almost 2 inches bigger in diameter (10.5 vs. 8.875), dont forget the difference in carrier strength, pinion size and strength, axle shaft diameter, housing strength, ff vs. s/f, etc. Night and day difference. Ive seen 12 bolts break with 35's and only moderate abuse. 38.5's sounds like an accident waiting to happen on a s/f axle. Its like racing a 4 cylinder civic against a 7 liter corvette z06. Have you ever tried to pick up a 12 bolt? If you think thats hard (about 250 lbs) try to pick up a 14ff which weighs in at a whopping 550lbs. Tell me that it is made from 2 bolts.


    Im not trying to bash you..cause I hate fords and I give you credit for embarrasing him. But get your facts straight and realize 38.5's arent exactly half-ton friendly.

    too bad i'm not a little closer to Glamis... i'd have to come down and embarass you with a completely stock 30 year old truck. i've got "2 extra bolts" too. :deal:

    and i'll even put the shifter in 2wd too.

    My rear only has 10 bolts so it must be even worse... :(

    Those little alpha-numeric characters cast in the webbing might say otherwise tho... Something along the lines of "D70HD". :rolleyes:
