Not that I have seen anything to say otherwise or failures but I imagine there's quite a bit more leverage put on the knuckle, spindle, bearings etc with DRW outers vs SRW outers.

Yeah you are probably right. I am kinda already planning on swapping because I don't want my truck much wider than it is now. And I want to run the same rim/beadlock combo I am now but in 8 lug and either 16" or 17" rim, soft 8's. Nothing fancy yet.

Well, tore the truck down today , I destroyed 2 more caps on the drivers side and my outer chromo on the passenger side is pretty messed up too. Ordered a new one, maybe I can get the old Yukon warranted? Good news, looks like my locker took the beating too so no need to do anything with that.

I think I am going to adjust my steering stops, looks like the joints are binding/hitting a little maybe that is the reason I am breaking caps everytime out.

Hmm maybe 38s, d44, locker, and lots of wheel spin can't possibly play into that.

No kidding! I'm gonna start building/rebuilding them. I want to swap the auto and the v8 at the same time, so I will just try and keep the 44 together for a little while longer.

BTW, thanks for the heads up!

Got my truck back together today, full chromoly front now with spicer 5-760x joints. I also tacked all the caps along with full circle clips. While putting it together I noticed my other good hub was broke too. So I put my drive flanges in, hope they hold, I'm out of spares LOL. So note to self, warn premium hub don't hold up too well for my set up, try something else next time. Lets go wheeling!

Did some dinking around today on the truck, installed my gauges, then put the mustang steering wheel in...It goes good with the shifter knob. Ready to go wheel it, I feel pretty good.




I also wired the high speed side of my fan direct with a switch incase it starts getting warm I can flip it on, and as a back up if the fan controler acts up like last time out and the fan doesn't come on. I was gonna buy a fancy controller but after buying a 60 I figured it could wait....lol

The way you drove at R&V today the tons are prolly a good idea. I can't belive that thing didn't break on Winch Hill. It was very fun to watch.

Haha! I am surprised too but I do know the Guy who built it...LOL

I believe the new steering wheel and gauges reminded me that I was in the mustang and made me a little cocky! LOL. Whatever it was I had fun and I am ready to do it again!

Pictures

I beat this side up pretty good, few new dents in the box, one big one under the rear window and the front fender




Messed up my fairlead and mount



This side I just dinked up the box a little more, thank got for my sliders, I used them a lot today.



Broke window



Drive shaft was put to the test....pass



Beat up leaf hanger



Then I noticed my leafs are getting fubared, might have to change them when I swap to tons, then install my antiwrap bar.




and here is another video, the one I really tested my truck on. I hope someone else got a better angle, this one doesn't show the rocks too well and it is long yet, not too good at editing but most of it is good.
