I think I asked for some advice from someone with experience with these axles. Not some smart ass with a hydro locked Ram.

3 Ton planetary axles with tires and a suspension setup like the one pictured. The 2.5 won't hold up to the abuse without the planetary hubs.

whats the point of 1400 hp.... seriously, do you plan on running 200 mph? with axles that heavy the truck will pretty much be a turd. and as tall as the one pictured youll be afraid of using the power because you will flip either backwards or sideways.

and i'd just like to thank you in advance for making the mounds a clusterfuck of 4' deep ruts everywhere

Wait a minute, you have a BTF Fusion chassis? How does that fit with a monster bronco sitting on a tv antenna tower thing you talked about in the first post?
