Okay here's the deal with my axles. They are the ones that came with the beast....Corp 10 bolt with 3.08 gears and a factory locking diff. in the rear. I would like to upgrade because I have heard from day one that these suck. I right now have 33x12.50x15 tires on it as far as me driving around in the city. This will become my daily driver here very soon when the exhaust is redone. (I do a lot of driving too) I might consider someday a second set of tires. The Dick Cepek Kevlar's 36x16.50.15's...(I had these before and loved them!) These would be for off-roading only not city/highway driving. For the most part the Blazer won't be off road. But when it is it'll be in sand and mud most of the time. Rock crawling would be sometimes but it wouldn't be anything too serious. Nothing major that'll have me vertical or even close. :-) My question is what kind of axles and gears should I look into going for? I have to consider cost here. But I'd rather spend more now to make sure they are something I have for a long time rather then something that I'll have replace again in a few years and cost me more in the long run. I am looking into getting a 14 bolt FF w/4.10's gears and a locker for the rear, then getting another axle for the front at the end of April and dropping them both in then. Does this sound like a smart move or not? It's a major purchase for me and I don't want to drain my bank account only to regret I did so. Can I stick this 14 bolt in the rear now and keep the front 10 bolt if I upgrade the gears in that? Then someday do the front when I really can afford it? Let me know what you guys think and what you'd recommend I look into and at before I get myself anything. Thanks! Stephanie <>< PS Thanks to those who helped me with the carb and what to do. I decided am going to keep what I have and rebuild it myself! Yeehaw!! :-) "I love the sound rice burners make when ya run over them"
