I have an 85' Yota with:

30 spline longfields
chromoly inner shafts
stock 22RE
Yucon 5.13 gears
after market rear shafts (but not chromoly)
front detroit
rear welded
currently on 35" boggers

I have four 39" boggers sitting in the shop that I really want to put on it, but I don't want to break my truck all the time. I think the front will be OK, but I am worried about the rear. I don't have a lead foot, but it ain't light. I wheel in Texas so some mud, trails, hills, and a little rock.

Thanks for the imput.

NOTHING is bullet proof, but it sounds like it's built well. People are running 42's on the 30 Spline Longs, so I say run it and you tell us!

you should be ok with it just go easy on the pedal while wheels arnt straight.

ive got a buddy with 44 boggers on a stock, WELDED toyota front axel and he hast busted it yet.

Remind me not to go wheeling with your buddy.:eek:

I would recommend going through the frontend if you just got it, make sure the bearings are all good and lubed and tight (just on the tight side of the specs). Knuckle bearings and wheel bearings. Start looking for spare hubs now. I never like boggers on a toyota, never could get them to clean out with a little 22RE pushin them.

i'm gunna have to see a video of that wheeling. maybe it has not broken because the hubs have never been locked?

I'll have to agree with this one.

Unless like 300 sniper said, he forgets to lock the hubs.

You will either break a ring and pinion or all the studs off your lockout. The front detroit will break anytime it gets shock loaded. I broke 2 in 6 weeks. So when you break something in the axle that creates a shock load, plan on a new detroit, or something better. The more pinion teeth the better.

not necessarily.

go ahead and read that and then run the 5.71 that they claim aren't weak. you can do all the measuring you want to prove how strong they are but running them in the real world can prove a very different result.

Yeah I see your point, but the ring gears are usually the ones to break, not the pinion.

Boggz are one of the heaviest tires out there, I would upgrade output shafts and carry an extra loaded 3rd before it even leaves the pavement, if you plan on running the 39's . IMO
