What size tire are you planning to run and I'm guessing because you said it's going to be a bush buggy that your going to beat on it with no mercy?

Big tire, heavy throttle=D60 front and 14 bolt rear in my books.

Yup I would start looking for a 60 front. Btw when you really need one you can't find one, as soon as you don't need one you will find a bunch of them and some will be a reasonable price! Ask me how I know!

If you don't drive hard then what you have will run 35's n/p. I hade good luck with that same setup, now I run a 60 front and a eaton rear but I drive like a idiot so you decide

Why not upgrade to chromoly axles in the D44? Convert the 12 bolt to a Warn ff setup. OK I have the corp 10 bolt front. Is this any good or definatly swap it out ASAP. Please help I have the same questions.

My buddy has a 14-bolt FF with 3.73's he's selling. This rear is so common, and generally inexpensive. You can't rebuild a 10 or 12-bolt for what you pay for a good used 14-bolt.

If you like 15" wheels, steel white-spokes are available in 8-lug. Its the last rear end you'll ever need!
