    im buying a m1008 6.2 with 4.56s gears, detroit rear welded front. ive got 60/14 that i rebuilt, 5.13s, disc rear, detroits in both. would you swap in the 5.13 axles? thats what im leaning towards since ive spent so much money on them and dont really wana part with them (they only have 1500 miles since i rebuilt them), but i wanna see what people say. keep in mind im going to be swapping in a tranny with overdrive. 5.13s, overdrive and 42's. what do you think?

    you got some built axles in the garage why not use them? the stock cucv axles are still valuable aswell and might be easier to sell then some built axles for a higher price

    No brainer. Get nekkid, put the 513's under it, sell the other 60/14 combo and use the money toward completing the project. If the neighbors haven't called the police at that point, do a nekkid victory lap around the neighborhood once the swap is complete.

    its ok, i found a lead on a truck, im checking it out this weekend. for highway 4.56s are going to be much better. i sold the 5.13 axles for $3k, and the new truck costs $3k so its perfect? ;) highway rpms with 4.56 and overdrive will be at 1850, which is best mpg for the 6.2.
