I guess the only reason to go tons would be so i would never have to worry about a tire size and horse power limit. That being said I have yet to break either of my stock dana axles with a 35" tire and a clapped out 4.0. I have a small block that could change that. I really think that I should stick with the 44/9 that i have because they are complete and still a slight upgrade. Greg and I did notice that the nine inch is so narrow that my leafs and my calpiers may not work well together.

Yes I have the 35 under the red one at gregs. If you want the brackets you can cut them off. I plan on being down there this weekend to strip the suspension from it.
