anyone doing it?
hows it going for you?
i have the 30 spline version if that makes any difference
how wide? i ran 35x12.50's with heavy foot in mud and didnt have a problem
I run 35s on 10 bolts with no problems yet. My son runs 37s on his locked 28 spline front and he broke his first ujoint last weekend. Just keep a set of spare axles with you, or at home. When he broke his u joint it ruined the axle , but he kept wheeling for another 4 hours in 3wd and drove it home.
i ran 36x12.5" super swamper tsl all summer ,even with the rear welded and had no problems,ran a combo of rocks and mud.
I figure it's OK if your not locked.
Not enough info to help you out.
1. Is it your DD?
3. What drivetrain combo? 350/700r4-208? Gears? 3.08's??
4. What is your driving style? Throttle jockey or finesse driving?
5. What kind of terrain? Mall crawler? Mud? Rocks? A little of everything?
6. What do you want to do with it?
Answer those and you'll get better educated responses.
Personally, I ran 38" TSL's on 1/2 ton D44/12B combo for years and never broke anything. I am not a throttle jockey unless I'm in mud or some other terrain that gives.
i run 35s on a 10/12 combo and im a lead foot! i have 4.56s and never have had any problems. ive been running this setup for almost 3 years, and the PO did it for about 10 years.
you will probably be allright in softer conditions but if you hit rocks and like most of us get a little heavy on the foot its pretty much inevitable that 10 bolt is gonna break most likely a shaft and then your wheel can fall off
id say go bigger its worth knowing your much safer
I run 36s on 10/12 bolt welded and so far so good
350 700r np241 with 308 gears
a little bit of everything wheeling wise except deep mud
daily driven for now
its to rusted out to wanna throw 1ton axles at it
and i have a bit of a heavy foot but not to to bad
Three O Eights And Thirty Sixs Are You Kidding? Good By Over Drive!
Sorry I Cant Use Numbers All I Get Is This !@#$%^&*()
You will be fine. You probably won't break a shaft every trip, but plan on it. Carry spares and wheel your heart out!!
I know lots of guys with locked front and rears with 36" Iroks who wheel rocks all the time. The do break, but if your proficient enough you could change a shaft in about 30 minutes
If you are open up front it will lessen your chances of breakage.
yeah i wanted to change those with the tires
I Have broke two front U joints, both times taking out a shaft and one rear axle running 10 bolts and 35's. The time I broke the rear axle was the day after wheelin and it broke when my locker enguaged driving down a prety buisy street. I was lucky I was able to slow down and pull off just as my axle came completely out. It did come out and my wheel and about a two foot section of axle rolled and hit my front fender. Looking back on this, it was lucky the axle didn't come out at a higher speed. Someone could have been really hurt or killed. I think a lot of us, including me don't always think about breakage while driving down the highway.
only in the mud or the soft hit rocks like a crawler and your broke
