First of all, I never plan to have tires larger than 36"; probably stay with 35". My truck serves as my outdoors moblie. I take it fishing and camping and sometimes put a canoe on the roof, so I dont want it any bigger! I go offroading in it but it is not only a trail rig. I do plan to put lockers in it. Here are my questions. I have found a 10 bolt w/ a locker, cross over steering (dont really need/want it), and new brakes for $500.00. 1). Should I get this or put $700 into my d44 to get it up to par(i.e locker and ctm joints)? 2). Is the d44 stonger/better than a 10 bolt? Why?
