    Why are you replacing the 10b front with a 44?

    its all in your wheeling style....ive never broke a 10 bolt or 44 but i have had buddies who favor one or the other...i perfer a 44 parts around here are more readly available thn 10 bolts...plus im prolly wrong but a 44 might have a little better ground clearance...

    Not too sure about the clearance issue. I know around here 10b parts are more available due to all the 44ed trucks have been crushed for 10 years now due to all the rust :D . The 10b bolt trucks are a little easier to come by. But even the pre 91's (SFA Trucks) are actually starting to get scarce around here. My 84 is in tough shape in alot of places but for around here and 300k it's prestine to be honest.

    Winch is spelled wrong in your sig. :D
