    I run 35s on 10 bolts with no problems yet. My son runs 37s on his locked 28 spline front and he broke his first ujoint last weekend. Just keep a set of spare axles with you, or at home. When he broke his u joint it ruined the axle , but he kept wheeling for another 4 hours in 3wd and drove it home.

    Not enough info to help you out.

    1. Is it your DD?
    3. What drivetrain combo? 350/700r4-208? Gears? 3.08's??
    4. What is your driving style? Throttle jockey or finesse driving?
    5. What kind of terrain? Mall crawler? Mud? Rocks? A little of everything?
    6. What do you want to do with it?

    Answer those and you'll get better educated responses.

    Personally, I ran 38" TSL's on 1/2 ton D44/12B combo for years and never broke anything. I am not a throttle jockey unless I'm in mud or some other terrain that gives.

    10 bolt

    you will probably be allright in softer conditions but if you hit rocks and like most of us get a little heavy on the foot its pretty much inevitable that 10 bolt is gonna break most likely a shaft and then your wheel can fall off
    id say go bigger its worth knowing your much safer

    You will be fine. You probably won't break a shaft every trip, but plan on it. Carry spares and wheel your heart out!!

    I know lots of guys with locked front and rears with 36" Iroks who wheel rocks all the time. The do break, but if your proficient enough you could change a shaft in about 30 minutes :wink1:

    If you are open up front it will lessen your chances of breakage.

    I Have broke two front U joints, both times taking out a shaft and one rear axle running 10 bolts and 35's. The time I broke the rear axle was the day after wheelin and it broke when my locker enguaged driving down a prety buisy street. I was lucky I was able to slow down and pull off just as my axle came completely out. It did come out and my wheel and about a two foot section of axle rolled and hit my front fender. Looking back on this, it was lucky the axle didn't come out at a higher speed. Someone could have been really hurt or killed. I think a lot of us, including me don't always think about breakage while driving down the highway.
