    OK here it is, im getting a dana 60 for the rear, but i don't have the money to upgrade to a stronger axle for the front. Will i be okay (strength wise) with the stock 10 bolt. I will be running a 4in lift with 35's.

    The axle should be ok. I knew a guy that ran a 6" and 35" tires on a 10 bolt and didn't have any problems. I don't know a whole lot about this stuff yet but i'm just goin' from what i saw!

    My friend (Blzr4x4ngkid) is in the same situation as you are. He is buying a 14 bolt FF for the rear and can't afford to buy a big front axle. Match the gearing on the front and rear axles. If you do rock-crawling, it's gonna break. If you go muddin' and you don't put a lot of friction on the tires and there's no pressure on the axle it won't break.
