    Sure, the 10's should hold up unless your a throttle jockey... About as big as ya wanna run on em...

    you'll need to trim pretty good for sure with a 4... I'd throw a 1" body and maybe some zero rates in... that should keep your trimming to a minimum...

    I wouldn't run 37" and 10's. They will last till the first time you pull off the pavement, then you probably be walking home. Just my 0.02

    I ran 40's on a 10 bolt and plan on running 39.5's on the 10 bolt I have out in the carport. I have even seen 42's on a front 10 bolt hold up to some major abuse. If you run 10 bolts and run em hard, ten make sure you carry extra shafts. Not everyone has 2g to drop on a 60, run what you can afford and learn to fix it.

    you are running 37's on a 44, what's the difference.

    i ran 10f and 12r with lockers and 36's beat it to chit and it lasted 2 years with little to no problems. I see 37's lasting no prob. Just dont be stupid.

    I just said that for their information. Everyone thinks that with a 10 bolt you can't run anything over a 35. I was just expressing that you can run larger, but carry spare parts. Now that was for a front, I couldn't tell you about a rear but I ran 35's on my 12 bolt rear and had no problems. When I went above 35 I dropped in a 14bolt.

    Well their isn't much difference between a 44 and a 10 bolt. And as has already been pointed out here by others, I also carry spare parts. Rereading my first post here I wasn't clear, but I was mainly talking about the rear.
