    Don't use a ten bolt. My buddy did and couldn't keep the u-joints alive.

    Unless you plan on re-tubing the front 10 bolt the differential is offset and won't work with the transfer case mounted as is, ie the driveshaft. Plus, a 10 bolt wouldn't be my first choice for a rear axle.

    Although expensive (but cheaper than custom axles, take a rear Dana 60 and a front dana 60 and put the front knuckles on the rear axle (may have to shorten axle tubes) and put under your rig. You can use the front outer shafts, knuckles, rotors, spindels, hubs, calipers, etc., but you will have to have new inner shafts made to compensate for the different pumpkin offset of the rear as opposed to the front. You will also need someway to control the steering (hydraulic, manual over hydraulic, etc.)
