Yeah but their flippin' cool. 7+ in gearing with all the extra gears and ***-tons of clearance.

Either way I'm exciting to see what's happening.

I think he is on his like 2nd or 3rd set of 5.13s for the 8.8

So he wants to put in the 9" but to match the width just run the full width D44. He got both axles from me for free...

lets just say the 5.13s didnt like my driving style on pavement.. the first set i thought i may have had an install issue. i checked the 2nd set for 3 hrs be4 the first drive. i just heard the common noise for sheering teeth a couple wks ago. still have not takin the cover off to inspect.. its just stuck in my head to go with the 9" now.. iv done approx 45 gear installs in my life.. this is the first time iv ever had a problem with any of them. so i have no idea whats goin on. pretty sure the 8.8 size cant handle my foot with the 5.13s. (i love smokey burnouts on pavement)

do you have pictures of you mesh patterns, just out of curiosity. theres got to be something we're missing. maybe a tweaked axle?
