I'd run upta 35. what power is in it. is it a d44 or d50. the best thing to do would be get a straight axle.

35" should be fine with stock power. Is it 3/4 ton or 1/2 ton . The 3/4 ton has bigger axles spindles and brakes and hubs so they could easily handle 37 inchers.

if you have the original front end in your b11,it should be a d28.this is a very weak front,and should not have bigger than a 31" tire used on it.the newer(92-up)rangers and all explorers use a d35 that is substantially better,and is a direct bolt in.35" tires can be used on this front,but bearing and brake wear become an issue.i build d44 ttb units for this aplication that bolt in,and can handle up to a 38" tire,but this is a more expensive option.a d50 can be built as well,but is going to cost as much as a d60 sas.in your rig,this should be good for 44"tires.

I guess i should have said a little more. its an early 80's full size bronco do not know size of motor yet, i was just thinkin may be I would build something useing the stock runnin gear with different body, if the d44 ttb will handle 35s that may work. did
any of these broncos comewith 9 " rears

sorry,dude.my bad.i saw the other post with the b11 and had that bouncing off the inside of my skull(you could play tennis in there).your d44 will handle 35s easily ,and with some minor mods will be good for 38s(or do the mods and have a stronger 35 setup)i specialize in ttb work,and can tell you that these fronts have got a bad rep from folks who dont know what they are talking about.most problems are from worn parts that would affect a solid axle as well. i build a variety of custom setups,so if you need any info,let me know.

GAs guzzler i bet 351 w
auto 3:55 f/b stock suspension and stock gears 35" will be fine
depending on how and where u drv

but i would recommend a new gear set fand b ack if lower than 3:73
even with 35" or 38"
with a good driver.

i run 35 mtrs on my 78 with 4.10 and quit well with 429

I'm one who doesn't agree with to much low gear .Especially when you run a standard and like mud or snow to high is no good either though so a good 4.10 and 35 is plenty.Unless you have a suzuki or jeep or toyota.....

I run Q78 swampers (35.5) on my f250 with a straight six and my gears are 3.73. it doesnt have trouble turnin them but i would like 4.11's.

with a 429 4.10 is fine...not all motors have the bottom end that you get with the big block.im running 44 boggers with 4.10 gears and a 460,but i also have enough gears to compensate.a general rule of thumb is for a v6 or small v8 35" tires need 4.56.my wifes truck has 3.73 on 35"tires with a 460 and could use a little more gear...4.10 would be nice,but i think for the amount of highway we see 4.56 could be good.we do pull a 2000lb trailer with a 6500lb truck loaded on it.
