Holy crap! I didn't realize how noticeable the difference is between the two. Maybe I missed it, but did you break the dana 60 you had?

That's a beef axle for sure.

Is the front d60 tough enough?

so far the stock shafts have held up great, ive had issues with the crush sleeve though. We shall see.

Most of my trouble is playing around in 2wd.

That's true haha your engine throws down over twice the power as mine. I should be okay with a 60. Was yours a 30 spline or did you bore the spindles to run a 35 spline shaft?

yeah that's pretty rad, no too bad on price to just have it already done and weld it up. But I'm sure you could fab a slick one up yourself.

that is probably a little more than i want to spend. it is a nice truss kit.

Also for whatever reason I dont care to add a lot of bulk unless I need to and trusses like that seem like overkill.

Is ballistic better about their shipping times these days? I wouldn't buy it from them just because it wouldn't show up for a year.

A picture of the truck right before I ripped the Dana 60 out.

Let's hope so. Any online retailer with shipping times as dismal as ballistic's was is doomed. Hopefully they got it together because their stuff is some of the best out there.
