    I've been reading a lot of questions about axles over the last few weeks. I have been wondering what everyone is wheeling with as it stands. So, what's under your ride as it sits today?

    EDIT: 01/22/2007: There's only 7 people with chrome moly shafts in the 1/2 ton axles????
    Surprising... anyone with 3/4 ton fronts (d44/10bolt) and 14bff should vote for option 5 or 6.
    ½ ton front/14bff
    Built ½ ton front (chrome moly shafts)/14bff

    EDIT: Started with open/stock 10B/12B. 3:08 gearing

    10bolt front with 3.08s
    10bolt rear with 4.10s

    I figure its not 4wd, but front wheel drive assist. used it a few times when I was stuck in soft stuff for some extra traction ;)

    I'm currently running a 14FF rear with 4.56's and a Detroit. The front is a 4.56 geared, 8 lug hub, lockright locked 10 bolt. I would rather be running a built D60 with a Detroit, but I dont have anywhere near the money for that....so im forced to carry extra shafts.

    It's all in my sig..

    I hate my Auburn Gear limited slip in my rear 10B. When I grenaded the R&P, I wanted to get a 14FF under it, but I got pressure from co-workers, friends, even people in the 4x4 shops to get this closed carrier with the limited slip. They wanted my truck back on the road ASAP. They all told me I would be very happy with it (this was before I became a paid member).... I had no trouble with it until I wheeled at Martinez... but again I didn't wheel rocks before this. Well, I'll be swapping everything out MY way and will be done RIGHT this time. D60/14FF and detroits is the way I'm going.

    under my truck right now? a half dozen 5 gallon buckets. No, really. They're holding the frame up while I clean it up.
