:stupidIf I wanted chevy parts I would buy a Blazer.
Translation. BLUE OVAL PRIDE.
When i do all the swaps and such i should have:Can't help ya bud. They are good axles. Next step up is rockwells.
It depends alot on a) how much horsepower you are making b) Gear ratios c) auto or stick d) do you like ripping rubber off your tires OR are you like me - hate to walk out of the back country. e) What do you intend to use the truck for.
There are knowledgable people here that know the answer.
I dont got stick...i got auto...but any ways...I was thinking the 4:56 because of the power that im gonna have...I'd say you are pushing it.
Why? Your horsepower is massive. Stick, granny low - massive amounts of skinny pedal.
On the plus side. You ain't gettin no grip in wet mud.
I think you can do it.
If you trash too many axles - upgrade to the mog or rocks.
I think you need minimum 4.88 or higher gears.
You might get more help over on pirate4X4. That's what they are all about. Extreme wheeling.
Hey it's only money right? How much fun do you want to have?
