IMHO 10"-14" is gonna be way too tall, and 4.88 or 5.13 wont be enough gear. besides that it looks good, i love those trucks

513s will be enough gear for that truck with 44s. its a mud truck not a crawler.

Ya i was running 3/4 ton alxes Dana 44 & 14bolt and i broke a inner and 2 outer axles shafts on the driver side. Then 2 sets of warn premium lockouts, passanger hub, and all the bearing. Then said nope not anymore and bought a dana 60 front and did the 35 spline stub shafts and haven't had a problem since!!!!
