sorry to steal the thread, but I'm not very computer savvy. can't seem to figure out how to contact a member directly.
hey ogre, what did you use for a rear end in your truck? I am looking at an s10 4x4 10 bolt, at 59 inches wide, might need $pecial order wheel$, or a ford 8.8 at 61 5/8 " wide, no $pecial order wheel$ required. the 8.8 is supposed to be stronger but would need the axles redrilled for the chevy pattern. I was going to go with a camaro 10 bolt but the one I got from an '81 ended up being bent and i figured the 8.8 is stronger anyway and would come with disc brakes. any ideas?
thanks,
dsraven
