I love those big subs. Keep your eyes open for a 14 bolt rear. Those 36's are going to be tough on the ten bolt. At least they were on mine. Congrats on the build and remember.............if it's not broken, fix it till it is.

Happy motoring

the 14SF will help alot.

Stay off the throttle and don't put lockers in the front axle, and you should make it live for a while.
