if you have an auto tranny, even with a SAS, you will destroy tranny's......the heat that they build while offroading is what destroys them...also the larger tires putting such a strain on the tranny doesn't help either...

it will help, but not completely......an auto tranny creats its heat at high rpms, and lower gears.......truth be told, a manual tranny is better for offroading.....

its 7" of backspacing, and the benefit of Fullwidth is strength as well as width. You can run a d60 with out narrowing it, yet you still get the strength. and you can get HP d44 with out narrowing which is a plus also.

if someone narrows a Dana 44 to fit the dimensions of a Ranger, and it is done right, it will be as strong if not stronger than stock......because it would take aftermarket axles.......and aftermarket axles should be chromeolly....

Im saying that the benefit of going fullwidth with hummer rims is you get the benefits with out all the work of having to narrow. And my strength comment was towards the d60
