Those things blew head gas like they were going out of style in stock form....i can't imagine one with forced induction.

I would also ditch the 5.71's immediately if not sooner...they won't hold up to a 22re let alone a v6

Not a bad looking truck

As for the head gaskets, I was told they were upgraded when the motor was rebuilt

as for the 5.71's we will see how far we can get

our kids are 2 and a 3 I will not be running wild any time soon

at this point I think it will work OK for some mild wheeling on the trails

it is a great platform to build from I have my eye on a built LS

I've never bought the "deepest gears are soooo weak" thing. I've personally set up dozens of axles with the lowest gears available, with never any r&p damage. Every r&p break I've ever seen was the result of poor gear setup.

I would think the ring and pinion is only as strong as the number of teeth in constant mesh and the deeper the gears the less teeth that are in contact because of the smaller pinion gear

That is true in a sense, however with any ring gear ratio there is essentially only two teeth in full contact at any time. The rest are either coming into or out of contact. However the deeper the ratio the sharper the angle between the lesser teeth on the pinion. Therefore the deeper the ratio the more important proper backlash and pinion depth is. Ratios such as 3.07 and 3.55 are extremely forgiving and can be set up way out of spec without much worry. Essentially, the deeper the gear the finer precision required.

ZUK did a great write up on what you just said, as long as they are set up well they are plenty strong. It's the poor setups that break easily.
