    Cool, for $200 sounds like a deal. You gonna put a flat bed on it or another stock bed?

    Axles look like a front 10 bolt, and the rear kinda looks like a 14 SF???? Kind of hard to tell on the rear axle.

    How do they tow? That depends on how much you want to tow, gears, and the condition of your springs.

    Looks like a nice start you have there....Maybe that rear is a 12 bolt. Send better pics tomorrow....

    6. I'm figuring 10 fronty and 12 rear, like most have said. If that is the case how strong are these, will they hold 35, if I dotn do any hardcore wheeling? I dont plan to take it offroad much anyhow becuase its going to be a tow rig. I dotn want to lift it any higher than the axles will hold, becuas eId otn want to get into swapping axles in a 200 dollar tow rig

    nice buy !
    dont looklike it has hardly any rust from the pic, cant see any holes ?

    front can be 44 or 10 bolt, both are 10 bolt covers but different shape, either could be under the front of a 77-79, and plus some light 1/2 ton trucks(56 inch 4-leaf packs) got 10 bolt rear 77-82

    203 is not weak, it is cast iron case, you will be fine unless has massive internal wear
