Okay, I just finished putting in my lift (6" EZ-Ride--SWEEET), and now I face a quandry. I have 10-bolts, and I am running 35s. I am going to regear next week, or the week after at the latest. Therein lies the problem... I am very paranoid about breaking my wimpy 10-bolt axles. I am eventually going with a 14-bolt/Dana 60 setup, but that is spendy and my current tires are brand new. So I want to wait until these tires are showing metal and then do it all at once. That'll give me time to save up at least. But God, I hate hiking out of the boonies, and it feels like I have a bitch of a hike ahead of me... When they are putting in my 4.56's, they may as well throw in a locker, right? Well, I have looked and looked and researched and researched and I am more confused now than I ever was! The Detroit is bomber, sure, but it seems a bit much for my application (70% street, 20% trail, 10% hardcore). Is it worth the extra money and on-road sacrifices in order to gain that Detroit strength? Would the cheaper EZ-Locker give me any strength advantages? If my axles were worth anything I would go with a Detroit in a second just for the peace of mind, but I am going to trash them eventually. Jeez, I can't think straight, what with this hellish hike that's coming. My axles will probably break in the middle of the night on something really mellow while I am wearing thongs or something, ten miles from the nearest pavement. Never fails. Maybe I just won't drive my truck ever again, I'll just sit here and look at it--it looks really good, by the way (pics up in a couple hours!).
