    1) Was it converted into a 4wd? C series trucks are 2wd.

    2) Having one extra tooth will not make a difference. 4.11's and 4.10's are basically the same thing.

    You are allowed like 5 percent on gearing front to rear to allow for tire wear etc , some axles only have 4.10's , some 4.11's available :k5: :k5:

    With that much lift on it, I would have to say he was running too large of a tire on an axle that isn't up to the task. General rule of thumb for 1/2 ton axles is 35's MAX on an unmodified setup, with a light right foot.
