Wiil toy front hold up to 35s locked?

I have an 81 toy I am building. I am on a budget though. Will I most likely break stuff in the front end with 35s and either welded or locker. I would like the extra traction, but don't want to keep breakin stuff. Oh yeah, the front end is stock and I will just run it that way due to money issues. Thanks.

depends on the terrien you wheel and your driving style, most likely if you like to "get it" stuff will break

also will run 5.29s. I plan to run the rubicon, dusy, etc. I drive fairly easy, but don't exactly baby it along either.

Other than just being hard to turn you should be fine. Welded or detroit just keep doing your forearm exercises, cause by the end of summer you will look like Popeye.

You will be fine unless you really romp on it....and it depends where you wheel. Just be smart, don't climb things while turning super-sharp and don't climb backwards.

ditto

I swapped in an 85 axle to my 91 toy (like many many other folks) I run 5.29s, longfields, dual t-case behind my 3.0 V6 and I'm on 35s. So far so good. I know a ton of us Toyota guys run this setup or one similar to it. People who are on serious rocks tend to break stuff but then, that happens even with the really tough axles and what not. Up here, I see fewer rocks but our true obstacles I would say are lots of rocks in the form of shelves with dirt before and after. I've yet to break any moving parts.

should be fine if you play nice. i'd recommend some kind of super birfs at least though, as a precaution
