    OK so I now have a 14BFF rear and a 8 lug 10B front(thanx DirtyJim!!) both open soon to be locked. I will soon be getting some new to me tires. So first ?, should I go 35x12.50r15 TrXus MT or 38x14.50r16.5 TSL swampers both would be the same price? I have no problem trimming so fender room is no problem and all I do is Mucky Mud and trails mabe a lil sand. Second ? Will come later.

    I would go with the 38's. I have 36" SX's and wish I had 38-40's. Two were already on the truck when I bought it, so I put two more on. I should've sold the first two and got 38's or 39's.

    its always tricky building up a 10b or 44... ya want more strength, but ya don't wanna spend so much coin that you could have bought a D60. If I had a 44, I'd run Yukon 4340 shafts and Longfields 300M joints. Trutrac front would be a good option... I'd rather have a limited slip than a full locker with a 10b front. The best option would be a selectable locker... but they are co$t prohibitive.

    If you plan is to get into a D60 front sometime in the near future. I would lock the rear, leave the front completly alone (don't waste the money) and have a few extra shaft on hand so that you can fix it on the trail when it breaks. Then save that money for a D60 and locker.

    Good advice there.
    Open in the front should be fine. If you lock the rear now, you will see a huge improvement. Later, when you lock the front, you will see a huge improvement again. If you do it in steps, you will appreciate it more IMO.

    In reply to your first question, I'd have to base my answer on what gears are currently in the new axles. I'm assuming you're not going to drop $ into a 10B to regear it just to swap it out for a D60 later. :deal:

    EDIT- Just saw you posted 4.10's. I'd stick with the 35"s for now, especially since you're running a 700R4.
