Im bored.. Dont feel like working on the truck.. Got these in the mail today..

Thought the size difference was pretty interesting.. 1/2 ton vs 1 ton..

1/2 ton gears are d44 rr TeraLow Gears
1 ton gears are 10.25 Yukon Gears

both 5.13:1 ratio








Anyhoo, lets make this dumb post interesting.. Ill turn it into a poll.. How long till the 42"s destroy the d44..?

i can bring this up when the 44 lets go.. if it does..

two trips, maybe three. the way I see it, you will be kinda a puss the first trip (first time out and all since the rework) the second time you will start gettin it and the third time, wamo. Yeah definately the third time.

I just got my 60/10.25 gears also, 513. man they are huge and fawkin heavy

Why dont you reinforce the axle like in the last issue of 4wheeler?
I know you may lose some ground clearence but if done correctly you will never crack the D44.
Since you have Warns/CTM's you dont have to worry bout those.
So I guess the only weak link would be the hub and bearings but those are cheap and easy to replace.

I dunno just my 2 cents.:shrug

I think the fact that you have warns and ctms right off the bat is gonna help a good amount. 42 is a big tire to run on a 44, But as long as you are smart....And dont drive like Jopes :goodfinge :goodfinge :goodfinge , You should be ok for the time being.

Once you get a 60...Will it be almost a bolt in, Or will you need to do everything all over again?
