    The only time I've busted the rears on my /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif was after a shop replaced them after I grenaded my tranny. They re-used some parts and that's what went. Other than that, the only thing that has left me stranded in the same fashion as you was a TC that went out... My 10-bolt has been working for over a year with 35's since they fixed the gears in the rear... (muddin' playin' on the rocks a little, and street)

    Sometimes they last sometimes they don't. I know of 2 Subs with strong engines that are running 1/2 ton axles with 38's and 39.5's.

    Are you going to get the FF now?

    I'm using my old SF in a trailer made out of an old pick up truck bed now that I have my FF.
