    Default 609 Axle Strong Enough

    to handle 42" tires and a 4.6 stroked 4.0 motor? AW-4 trans and 3.8 to 1 Atlas, probably 5.38 in the diffs.
    I am the reason I can't have nice things

    piece of cake if built correctly, ie.. 35 spl axles, nodular case or even better-aftermarket alum with thrust bolt & 'daytona' bearing retainer, forged yoke.
    the bad!--locker 'space' is limited -small, spool solves the strength issue, but suck in a front end. ARB or YUKON grizzly work well.

    not interested in using the stock 60 center section? shaved its not much bigger than a 9, just heavier! or you could put 10" gears in the 9" housing or.... now you got me going!!

    Sorry...

    Good info, didn't think about the limited locker space. I am trying to keep things as light as possible, but want to be strong too.
