    If you can't weld very well then yes that is a possibility. I have run a welded 14bff with 32 and 35" tires for over 2 years on the street and haven't broken it yet.

    How did you weld it? Did you void weld it like the aritcle in the tech section or ball weld it all together? The second one it the strongest and will last longer.

    I welded the hell out of my old 14bolt and wheeled it HARD and drove it on the street w/ 38" TSL's w/o any trouble at all.
