That is what I am moving towards right now.

100lbs is a lot of weight. No need for a 14 if he's only running 37's. A fab 9 housing is a lot stronger than the tubes on a 14. More clearance, less weight and a stronger housing. I'd take a 9 on 37's all day long.

I agree, if we are goin to stay with 37's. I want my 40's back in a big way and will probably have a set of both 37's and 40 by the end of the year.

I thought about doing the same thing, 37's to race and 40's to play. I really want my reds back!

A 60 is NOT stronger than a built 9. A 14bolt is of course. But, that would be a field plow on 37's. And 100lb is a ton. With how light your rear is and how heavy a 14 bolt is tuning for go-fast would be challenging.

9 is the "right" decision for you. But like I said, the cost is up there especially if you strong on everything. So do what you can afford.

Don't stretch yourself so thin that you don't enjoy racing. If you can afford it, killer. If not, run what you can afford. It's all for fun.

That is the way I am going to approach this whole thing, it is all about having fun and enjoying the sport.

Well the old axles are sold, the new ones are in the garage. Just have to start building them now.

04 Super Duty Dana 60 Front
00 E250 Dana 60 Rear. (smooth bottom)

I plan to only change the axles and keep everything else the same with the exception of shock tuning.

Parts are coming in.. just waiting on the new 8 on 6.5 Monsters...

I also started on my own truss, 4 1/2" wide by 1/2" thick ~ thank goodness the press brake that I made works like a charm!

Good.... now just use that AR-15 and kill this build already!

I probably overlooked it, but whats the plan now? Swap one-tons, then leave suspension the same? Still 3 link front? How about steering?

Pretty much swaping in the 1 tons, everything else will remain the same. I will be changing the gearing to 5.38's from 5.13's.

Gears will be here monday, new Monsters RT's with aluminum rings will be here Monday as well ~ I hope only ordered them last Tuesday...

Well all the gear parts are in, now it is time to learn how to set up gears to save some $$$. Anyone out there have experience in San Diego area that can help for Beer!

Also found a pick of the Jeep when I first started to wheel...

I tried in once along time ago and did not have the tools nor the desire to go slow. Now I have the tools but may lack patients as well...
