    Juat wondering what they look like cause my 10 bolts on my 82 look beefier than ones on my friends 88. (Not as round) /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    It looks EXACTLY like a 1/2 ton 10 bolt but has 8 lug hubs. I'm sure both vehicles have the same axles - probably just something else that's making them look bigger. Does one vehicle have a lift and the other not?

    Not exactly true, the late model 10B rear has a 10.6" ring gear.
