    Actually, I'm hoping to get a set as soon as they're available.

    We've got 5.38's in our UD60 axles but something higher would be nice. These get the job done but just barely.

    Do you think if, I mean when lol you upgrade to higher gears would it be a weak point? Just curious is with 42’s if a Dana 80 in the back may be more beneficial? May be thinking for myself way way in the future and wanted to hear your thoughts? lol
