Default Ford 10.5" from a 05 super duty.

Tossing around going to 1 tons on my Toyota. Plan is 40-42" tires and eventually a 5.3.

I have a line on a set of 05 super duty axles cheap. The front is exactly what i want....big knuckles and unit bearings, heavier tubes....i can prolly even get by with the stock 1.5" 35 spline outers for a while ( i am a conservative driver and will still be 4cyl powered initially). Gonna run stock brakes as well.

My questions are with the rear. I was gonna run a 14 bolt but the 10.5 is already disc braked, has 35 spline shafts, and is the right bolt pattern. My first issue is with gears....the lowest 10.5 specific gear set i can find is 4.88 and they are big money.....however some sources state that ford 10.25 and 10.5 take the same ring and pinion which makes the gears much cheaper and much more common. My next question is on the carrier.....i think it currently has a limited slip meaning i can't weld it (my plan....current diff is welded and it works good for me).....can i use a 10.25 carrier or do i need a open 10.5 carrier or am i stuck with a full carrier locker?

Is the rear axle worth messing with at all for a modestly built rig or do i go for the 14bolt. The guy will only sell the axles as a pair so i will have it regardless.

I have searched but can't find any real solid info so any help or thoughts would be great

k, the carrier is the carrier, and they are all interchangeable.
The ring and pinion are not so lucky. they need to be a matched set, and you need to use the pinion bearings for the appropriate r&p
So if you get a 5.13 10.25 r&p you need the 10.25 pinion bearings.

carrier bearings are all the same, and like I said, any 10.25 or 10.50 carrier will work fine.


btw I have a 10.5 trac loc carrier with 10.25 4.10 gears on mine in a 10.5 housing, just so you know
