i have 35s right now i had to cut the front fenders and i dont know on the t-case yet
and to be honest the build is a low budget build i gave 500.00 for the truck 100.00 for the tires and 200.00 for the 351w with edelbrock 650 i am looking in junk yards for stuff now

If you build them right you ought to be fine with a D44 and a 9" I think. 60s can get expensive.

you can build a 9" to outhold a stock Dana 60....however since you are only putting a 351w in your truck, a stock 9" would be more than enough axle to hold the power of the engine...
