    ok iam not to sure what everyone uses. but basically i want to be locked up front. iam not sure what axle everyone goes with, as far as i know i have the stock 10b. would it be worth it to get a locker formy 10 bolt or throw another axle under if i should do a new axle what to go with d60? also for this kinda conversion is it bolt on or weld to fit.

    Really depends what you want from it. do you really need a front locker?

    If your not sure i would suggest trying a Lockright as they're cheap and bolt straight in. If you really like it and the 10blt can't take your driving style then upgrade to a bigger axle.
    If you hate it you can go back to an open diff no problem.
    I think Tim can do Lockrights for around $240 but PM him for his best price.

    I'd go lockright in the 10 bolt and see how it holds up. If you are running 33s like your info says I'd stick with the 10 bolt. I wouldn't run a 60 or 14 bolt with 33s myself cause of the lose of ground clearance.

    Ive seen a few people blow up warn hubs, shafts and ujoints on a locked 10bolt.

    Mainly depends on yer driving style.
