    36 inch IROKS with 10 bolts, will the axel\'s survive?

    I want to get a 4 inch lift and get the ORD 1 inch body lift and was wondering if first of all 36's will fit and if the 10 bolts can handle them?

    I have a 4" lift 36" TSL 10b front & 12b rear. They will survive if you don't play hard, but if your like me you will get a 14 bolt... /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Rear will break, go with something a little more heavy duty like a 9" or 14 bolt SF

    The front will survive no problem unless you drive like a complete dumb ass. I run 36" Iroks on a LOCKED 10 bolt front and run my truck very hard on the rocks and have NEVER broke it.

    I would get at least a 12 bolt rear, but if you are light on the gas, they will be fine. I have 10b in front with 37"MT/R's and I carry a set of axles, but have never had a problem. But once again, I don't hammer down on the skinny pedal. Just use your head and it will last.

    theres no difference in strength between a 12 and a 10 bolt and replacing a 10 bolt w/ a 12 bolt would be just plain retarted

    To both of you, I disagree, but a) I'm not going to hyjack this post to say the same thing that has been said a million times in others, and b) Isn't it great that we all have our own opinion.

    Re: 36 inch IROKS with 10 bolts, will the axel\'s survive?

    Im planing on putting a 14bolt in the rear, but for now i dont have the cash flow to convert the entire rig over to 8 lug. for now im sticking to the 10 in the back with a lockright igot of ebay. Im going to be running 35" claws. My question is can i fit a 15" rim on a 14bolt i know the drums are huge. Just desiding if if should go 16" rim or not.

    Its not the rear axle that is a problem with 15" rims, only the front calipers on a 3/4 or 1 ton front axle. There it may take a little grinding to fit a 15" rim but they can fit.

    15" wheels will clear those big drums on the 14bff.

    That's where I'm headed.

    Gotta do some grinding on the front, though (for the 4"+ backspacing wheels)
    I've read that the 2.75" backspacing 8 lug 15" fronts will not need any grinding at all. (but they stick out a bit)

    What tire are you buying that is a 35x16 or 15? Has the MT claw recieved new sizes?

    Currently running 35x16 boggers and would like to find a wide 35 that would fit on my 14's and not wear like a swamper.

    THey probably won't clear without some trimming, if you don't want to trim than I would get a 3" body or a 6" lift and 1" body.

    I honestly would say you wont break anything because those 36's are narrow. How much power do you have? motor stock? Stay away from the rocks and very deep mud and I bet you will never break anything. I never broke my 10B's with 33x14.50 tires and my built 406 pushing. I still have yet to have a prob with my front 8 lug 10B with 35x16 boggers on it and the same motor. I would say the 35x16 bogger would be meaner on parts than a 36x13.50 IROK with the same weight rim. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
