    Dumb question about last week\'s Trucks

    OK, dumb question time. If on Trucks, they installed a non-stock configurable however T-case, why didn't they use a driver side front shaft model? That way they could have used a Ford/Dodge front D-60 which would probably be stronger than the hopped-up (and probably real expensive) 10 bolt. This is typically what they use when swapping a straight axle into an IFS model since that NP241 is on the "wrong" side. If I remember right, there is a year range that on the Dodge D-60, the spindle and stub shafts can be swapped out for Chevy parts, thereby maintaining Chevy bolt pattern. Just a curious observation.

    The answer(drum roll) - those guys are idiots.
    I mean, they spent $$$$ on a hopped up 12-bolt when they could have bought a band new 14-bolt for half the cost. And they used new wheels, so lug pattern would not be an issue because they could have bought whatever they wanted.

    Yeah, those are fruity names and I think the "grease" on their hands is just make-up [​IMG]

    Come on Wes. I'm sure that Blazer is plenty tough enough to haul around Stacey and Mel on their dates. lol Jeez, those are both girls names! If I could pick guys for a truck show, they would be named Bubba and Skeeter. lmao
