Want to put them in the ton but worry about the pinion being tiny and not living behind 500 Hp and 4Ds?

Buy a 14bolt. It should be fine. If not, see first sentence.

I'm running 5.13's in my half ton axles and 38.5's and paddle tires, and I'm not easy on it at all, I've broken the rear axle 3 times, been threw 2 carriers and sheared all 12 ring gear bolts off, but never broke the pinion
