    14FF it, buy 2 new wheels, and dont put it in 4wd until you can get a front axle to match. no way you'll break a 14FF with 35s.

    Or, you could not drive like a jackass and it will hold up longer than a month.

    they should bolt right up. :confused: cut the AIR tubed off and weld them up, or just use a 1/2" pipe cap.

    if you can find one arb'd, ctm'd, and upgraded shafts, for $425 ill buy it. but 'the deals that can be had, and what deals you can actually get, are two different things ive learned. :(

    i'll second that. just keep your foot out of it and it'll last awhile.what gears are in your stock 10b? if you have a 700r4 leave it in D. save up and look for a decent 14b or better yet a match set of 3/4t axles.

    just looked at your profile, do you have a 4.10 geared 12b? thats perfect with a non OD tranny IMO. last a long time if you dont abuse it extremely

    I've got a 3.73 geared 10-bolt rear from a '94 Suburban that you can have for $75. It's complete from drum-to-drum. It isn't the ratio that you're looking for, but it would at least get you around for a while. :)
