    well I found a deal on whels and tires today $350 with 75% tread, but I am worried that they are too big for the front 10 bolt. The 10 bolt has the 30 spline axles I will be using a d60FF in the rear. Should i sell the 37s and run 35s? I do plan on upgrading to a better diff and found a deal on some aftermarket axles and stubs, but I am worried that the u joints will still be too weak.

    Dont mash actuator!! Be easy on the throttle and while turning on the trail. Are you open, Gov-bomb, Posi, Locker? Be gentle to 'er. I had a cousin with a 91 Z71 who ran 36's off of 10 bolts with rear Auburn Posi and didnt have problems till he tried a nasty burnout from dirt to pavement and blew out the rear.

    Thats what I figured. I figured I will be pushing it, but its hard to pass up on this deal. How are pro comp x terrains? I will mostly be doing trail riding and some smaller rocks until I can afford a d60.

    IMO Pro Comps are over priced and a better tire can be had for cheaper. I have never owned Pro Comps so I really have no experience with them....I have MTR's and have found this to be an extremely good tire. On my second set.

    But for $350 with h2 rims they should be a pretty good deal.

    I would grab that deal for sure. Worst comes to worst sell them. Do not fall for that D60 only crap!! Is your front end locked? If so stay easy on the throttle. Hossbaby50 is running my old 37's and has little problems.

    I didn't know the tires on the wheels were Pro Comp X terrains. If you can score them for that price than I would go for it. I would however not purchase Procomp tires new. JMO

    This is the current set up that i am running on a dana 44. 37x13.50x17 x-terrain's on h2 wheels and i have not had any problems. The only time i have found that i dont like the x terrrains is in the deep snow on the highway. They tend to slide around. Off road they work great. Mud, rocks, trail riding you should have no problems. I have about 3000 miles on mine and i am very happy all in all. They ride great and are very quiet. I didnt even balance them. They ride great. I would buy them again.
