    ok so i got this project im working on, its long term and kinda but not really on a budget. i have a flat top knuckle dana 44/10b and a 14bff, i want to get a 60 for the front and keep the 14b or should i go all out with some rockies? this truck is not going to be street legal and is just for mud bogging and trails.

    How big are your tires going to be? BBC? SBC? How much torque?

    Rocks are not more expensive than a 60/14 bolt if you don't want to drive it on the street (i.e. you don't have to worry about braking issues)
