    I took enough slack from you guys when I told you how many miles mudnuri has - then you found out it is a 305, then I opened my mouth and told you it was 1/2 ton..... so next year your gonna be in for a suprise...the 305 is coming out....if I have my way- it will be a big block going in, but John says "350 is all your gettin"...so sounds like the engine is done...It'll be fuel injected. I don't wanna "run outta gas" like Josh did.......

    You guys balked at my 208 as well, SO..guess I need a different one.... which one?

    I'm NOT going 1 ton. so 3/4 ton it will be.

    what else do I need. I will not be doing the nasty q or M trail or any of that stuff...but want to run more than stock trails...

    add to my list folks.

    actually you can run the 208 if you want to...its got a lower ratio than the others out there plus its a hell of a lot lighter...you just need to worry about the slip yoke if you have some extreme flex

    all im running is a 208 and you saw how many problems i had with it...none

    The only thing in my truck that is going to have anything to do with the number 8 is the bolt pattern on the back of my 205. Plus I can only count to the following numbers. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    why just 3/4 ton? do it right,do it once. talk to wayne and get him to hook you up with some one tons. locked and geared and be done with it. ready to drop in for under 1800, then pick up a set of $20 rims and tires.
    its a long drive but worth it.

    Why would I need 1 ton? I'm not going to be doing any hard core wheelin. More than likely what I will wheel is in Paragon, once a year when Wayne and Donna have the UCP. Here in VT, we don't have rocks etc... we play in mud more than anything else.

    $20 rims/tires. Man, you guys might have expensive beer down there, but your sneaker's are cheap!

    Maybe I'll have to get wayne to build me a set of axles, and come down next year a few days early, and put them in....hmmm now that's a thought.

    Wayne- what do you want to build me?

    I think you are 1 of the VERY few that ended up with ZERO damage....

    I think 3/4 it is... man should NEVER have swapped back to a 1/2 ton with the guy I bought it from!

    going to Texas to get me a cowGIRL hat for next year, I see that makes so much difference!

    the 3/4 D44 is the same as a 1/2 ton 44, just bigger brakes.
    the 14bolt is indestructable so no loss there, but i feel safer with a 60 out front.

    just my two sense. i have yet to beat on the truck so maybe so-far the 60 is overkill, but i got sick of wiping out 44 spindles.

    Well I think I did pretty damn good with stock 10 bolts. /forums/images/icons/blush.gif Actually Brandy you should be fine with a set of 3/4 tons. I think having a locked 14ff in the rear is the big key to it all.
