He has been runnin the 38.5s for a few months now before that it was 35x16.00 boggers and a real heavy right foot with the AMC 360 in frt of it.

ive got a 31spline 8.8, 5.13 gears, locked f&r on 36" militarys(same strength as the exploder 8.8) and ive been in some situations where i was sure something was gonna break(mostly the front end) but nothing did(fingers crossed)

ive seen break point tests of the 31spline 8.8 and it was actually a little stronger than a full floater 60 rear end(both in stock trim) and if your worried about the "c clip" axles, just get one with discs on it.

I haven't forgotten. I've got your beer right here, maybe if you came out and wheeled with us you would get it.


[!] Owen for not wheeling.

Do you want me to put a nipple on it for you too ? [j]

Oh! and about the 8.8 Ya I'm a little hard on it, I've had it for a few years now and the only thing I've done was warp (bend) one of the axle shafts. When I'm doing doughnuts the boggers like to rub the frame a little, no biggie. Right now I'm waiting for the disc brake conversion kit.
