Hubs or fuse/flanges from a part time?

    I have a d44 and a 205 tcase. Right now i am running the drive flange/ fuse thingys that come on the fulltime chevys with the 203. I only did this because they are stronger than the hubs i had and only cost me $20. Is it a bad idea? The blazer sees very little street time although it is street legal.

    Not a bad idea at all, especially if you don't drive it all that much. Keep 'em :D

    Just to point out that I think you mean a FULL-time '203, if it's factory, and is not a selectable hub.

    Be the same as leaving the hubs locked ... slightly higher tire wear and slightly larger turning radius, slightly increased wear on the R&P ... nothing catastrophic, or even noticeable, IMHO.
