    ME. All my trucks I have owned have been 1/2 ton. Bought a dana 60 and 14 FF but decided they were better as boat anchors and sold them. Too heavy and too big, they get caught up on everything /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    It's like asking, "how many people here actually liked 'Battlefield: Earth'?" Nobody wants to admit to it.

    Corp. 10-bolt (open) all around still... Can't afford otherwise yet /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I do have a 14ff in the works (sitting in a friends yard), just don't have the cash to buy it/build it.

    MMMMMMMMMMMM...Dreaming of the day I get a 14BFF. At this rate I'd be happy with 8 lugs. Too bad other projects must be done first (leaks fixed, new bumbers, negitive arch front springs, OBA (already have all parts, just need motor brackets), a little lift, sliders so wife and kids can get in(steps not worth it), etc, etc... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Ive got a Dana 44 / 12 bolt. It's coming out this summer. I'm going 3/4 ton for now. When I find a Dana 60 for the right price I'll step up to 1 ton.
