purpose of the truck is for mild wheeling no rocks mostly mud and sand. running 33 swampers at the most maybe go 35s. i can get a free matching set of frt. and rear 12 bolt 6 lug axles full width from 80s style chevy 4wd. not worried about rims because theyll be free also. do you think its would be worth it to go full width. i priced 4 wheel parts amc20 inner shafts was about $280 and a locker also $280, front inner shafts was about $500.is the 12 bolt even an up grade or just as doodoo.

12 bolt is not an upgrade. For what you are trying to do Full width is more of a headache. Im gonna assume since you were looking at AMC 20 shafts, its a CJ of some sort. Get once piece shafts for the rear. Lock front and rear with Aussie lockers or maybe a detroit in the rear is you have the cash. Run it, its cheap fun, for 33s you can probably beat those axles all day long in soft sand, mud and just trail riding. If you have the gearing you could even do some mild rockcrawling. As long as you know that if you bind your wheels, do wild burnouts, wheelhop up obstacles, or have the gas pinned while your front end is in the air and on its way back down that you run a greater increased risk of grenading something you should be good and have alot of fun with it.
