    lock rights will hold up but will the carrier? I would run 35s on my present K5 with a locker(84 with 10 bolts) but I would drive like I am right now while breaking my new engine in, be nice on the throttle and don't plan on anything spectacular. Trying to get rid of the 10 bolt as quickly as I can myself.

    It actually depends more on how he drives it. If he is expirenced he should be able to make those last for a very long time. I have made stock samurai axles(toothpicks) work with 33' and double lockers If he is a foot to the floor or doesnt' finnesse anything he will probably break not onlly the lockrites but axles driveshafts etc.
