Why isn't a 10.25 an option. They're cheap, plentiful and will tolerate the 12v and an idiot doing clutch dumps very well. If you can get your hands on a newer 14b (see the thread about new beefy 14bs in the GM section) then that's about the only thing that would be better.Yeah, I'm not even looking at C&C axles. The Ford and dodge I'm working with both have the same width frames, 37", I think, I don't have my notes in front of me. 10.25 isn't an option, how will a 10.5 hold up to a warmed over 12V / 5 speed and a heavy foot? I'm hard on shit.
