    They might last for awhile but I don't think they will last forever. They might brake right off the batt though to.

    39.5's are well above the normal tire size a 10 bolt can handle. Mud can be more forgiving then some other terrains but if you are on the gas and the tires grab a root or something that is tough it will most likely grenade a 10 bolt.

    I honestly wouldn't run 39.5's on 10 bolts, especially the rear 10 bolt. A 14bff is to cheap to not run for something like that in my opinion.

    run it untill it brakes then upgrade. i use to brake 12 bolt ring and pinons all the time in the mud and i kick myself now for not upgrading to a 14bff. i sent atleast 900 bucks in 1/2 ton axles before i went to a 14 bolt.




    btw i do find the mud in arizona, it just take sometime to find it.:grin:

    Run it till it breaks or you get the money to swap in the 14bff whichever comes first. The 10 bolts may hold for quite awhile, but don't be surprised if they break quite often or soon either.

    All I have to say is if the sticker in the glove box has "G80" on it, don't even waste your time, get a 14 bolt.

    Like mentioned G80 = govbomb. It will explode for no apparent reason at any given moment. I blew up my 10 bolt govbomb on the street with 32" tires and a stock 350. Took off hard one day from a stop and BOOM it was over.

    Well than you have found yourself between a rock and a hard spot...

    There is no easy way to get around it. either get that 3/4 set under the truck with 8 lug rims and your 39.5's or leave the 39's in the garage until you can afford the swap. Just wheel with the 35's, it's not worth bolting on the 39's and blowing the rearend when you can't afford to blow it....

    So what gears are in it now? You say switch the front to 4.10's if you swap in your 14 bolt....if you have less than 4.10's in the 10 bolts now I don't see any point to mounting up 39.5's for that reason alone. If you have a dana 44 and a 14 bolt already, then put them under there and buy the rims you found. That is your best bet :thumb:
