In my entire life, I have seen only one 9" rear fragged. It was in a Nostalgia Funny car. I don't know how much power the motor was makin', but I'd guess 1800/2000 hp on alcohol.

9" fords are called bulletproof for a reason.

Even the Ford 8.8" is supposed to be comparable to the GM 12 bolt. It would be a step up from the 10 bolt that you are currently using. Plus you can get them with rear disc brakes, posi traction and the majority of them had 3.73 gears.
