    What a piece of junk. Not as bad as some show trucks I've seen, but still stupid. I think the 10 bolts and 44" Boggers aren't the best combination. I tried the invisible front driveshaft trick one time, but I couldn't ever get the front end to pull. LOL!

    Definately for the open minded. I also saw the giant front lift blocks.

    I had to laugh when I thought how someone could think this was a cool/good idea. "Hey Phil I'm gonna lift my truck 21.5" inches and put 44's on my ten bolts..."[​IMG]

    Not for me, but I'm sure someone will buy it.

    Gee thanx for the warning.

    What we have here ladies and gents is a genuine $4000 lawn ornament.
    I can't believe that some one spent over 2K on tires and wheels for some thing that you can not even drive.

    Ok, so that aint exactly even a useful truck.. but are the 10 bolts really really that bad? I thought what made the 10 bolts weak was the splines and the axle housing flex.

    Wouldnt a good truss + Floater kit /upgraded splines fix that problem? Seems like a pretty decent way to do if if your not gonna go over 35's

    I have seen a 12 bolt hold up to 44s for about 6 months, but it had 2.73 gears.

    That is the most pathetic looking POS I've ever seen though. Lifted stepside? What a joke!

    10-bolts have several weak points besides the ones you mentioned. One is axleshaft diameter. Its as small as they come for our trucks. Second is the c-clips. If the shaft breaks, the wheel will depart from the truck. With a FF, it will at least stay under the rig. Another weak spot is the size of the ring &amp; pinion. The ring gear is only 8.5" in diameter versus the 10.5" gear of the 14B. A 4.56 gear set has the same number of teeth whether it is a 10-bolt or 14-bolt version. So, with a smaller gera itself, the teeth on the 10-bolt will have to be much smaller to get the same count as they would on the larger gear. And, as the gear gets higher numerically, the pinion gets smaller. It, too, becomes a breaking issue.

    10-bolts can work under our rigs. I run two of them fully locked with 35s. The key is to watch the amount of torque applied. Torque is what kills the 10-bolts. That is why most people wouldn't go over 35s with a 10-bolt as the torque required to move the meats becomes too great.

    No. the very fact that he spent the $$$ to upgrade 10b's that are running 44's is a testament to the fact that the owner of that rig only has 3 brain cells and they are all fighting.

    10b can be good for 35's and under. that is it.

    and that is not a good truss. that is a bling-bling truss. for gawd's sake it is chrome!

    My intial urge is to buy the truck just to save it.............remove the chrome, 44" tires, and make-shift lift and replace them with a nice 4" lift and some 35's. I would love to have a clean stepside.
