    i agree, if they are only going to blow through mud holes, 10 bolts are fine, still not what i would choose, but as long as they leave the axles as open diffs, they shouldnt have any problem. my 10 bolts held up just fine in the mud around here for years untill i got into rocks, they poped the first weekend.
