I don't see the craziness in putting 5-tons in. You know someone is going to do it eventually. I've seen more 2.5 tons break than I have 60's. I have personally been present to see 4 shafts break and know people who have broken 2 more. That's 6 total. They're not as bullet proof as everybody says they are. Nothing is if you drive the way some people I know do. So 5-tons are the next logical prgression, IMO. That or 2.5-tons with 5-ton shafts and outers. I know that, when I am done building my comp chassis, I plan to build a buggy with either a blown small block or a healthy big block and 49" tires just to have fun in. No way I'm putting 2.5 tons in. It'll be a 4-seater just to have fun in. I don't care if you call me crazy. It'll be FUN! And my prediction is that I won't be the first to do it, either.

5 tons have 2.12 inch diameter shafts. why not use something more unique like an f106 axle?

Not sure about 10.26 ratio, there is a 5 ton rockwell with planetray hubs. The std. rockwell 5 ton has 6.44 ratio.

What vehicles originally came with that axle? Its hard to get perspective on the size but it appears that it isn't any bigger than a 2.5 ton.

How old is your average 2.5 ton though? I'd bet they are older than most 60's under folks rigs and have already seen more abuse than your average 60...

holy fawking crap those are huge!

"Specs:


- 6.83-24.60 gearing.

- Optional input mounted park brake

- Steering front and rear

- Limited slip

- A standard input pinion unitized seal reduces the likelihood of oil leaks.

- Permanently lubricated steering axle shafts are standard; eliminating this maintenance requirement.

- Hydraulic Dry Disk brakes

- Straight tie rods provide additional protection from external damage.

- Weigh approximately 2,000 pounds apiece.

- OIL CAPACITY: (Estimated) Carrier 44 pints (20.8 liters) Wheel end 6.5 pints (3.1 liters) each



Now if somebody breaks these out on the trail, u are doing something majorily wrong oh, yea what kind of vehicle are you gonna toss those on, since you'd have 4,000lbs of axles!!!

That's what people used to say about the 2.5-ton Rockwells, and then the 5-tons !
