Maybe I just really liked your rack bud. Na I was being a dick. As I said its getting a 14 bolt when I have the funds. Until then I really dont plan on trying to load my spare gear on my axle so I'll have to get back to you on how much it can hold. Like Downey said its just whatev. Congrats on calling it, I'll send you a cookie if you pay shipping

Didn't realize it had been this long since I updated this. The truck has since been proven as one of the most capable trucks in our group, been taken on some awesome crawling/camping trips, driven thousands of highway miles and kept on going. Unfortunately I have to sell it due to financial reasons. Enjoy the pics and take a look in the classifieds. Not even trying to make back what I have into it.

Very late reply to this, but looking at that broken shaft, I think there may have been a defect in that axle. notice the dark area? That suggests that damage had been there for a while. I've got a 31 spline 8.8 in my '96 Bronco on 36's and the axles survived me blowing up the trac-loc diff into 10 different pieces.
(351W, E4OD in low, tcase in low, tires aired down to 10, going up a ledge.)
