    I think I'm going to put some 5.13's in my rig with 33" tires and TH350 ... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif no I'm not...but it might make up for the lack of torque that the 305 has /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    Good to hear you're happy with your choice.

    yeah I think 10 bolts and 14BFF stop at 5.13, maybe one more gear for the 10bolt but then your talking about some tiny teeth on a thin toothed ring gear /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    10 bolts go to 5.57 /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I believe the reason is that 10 bolts are available in cars and trucks, and in a car application, those gearsets might not be that bad.
