My plans over the next few months is to lift another 4" (8" total) with a shackle flip...with that driveshaft modifications (anyone have any luck without buying a new shafts??)
Re-gear and 38's following shortly after.
I can get a dana 60 w. 4.1 gears for $400. Would this be better than re-gearing my 9.25 which isn't much cheaper really.
I have the wifes blessings since she was expecting me to get a new truck in a couple of years...guess she thinks I'll still be happily involved in the RC...probably right.

Like mentioned, the 9.25 can handle the 38's. Chrysler actually put quite a few in the 3/4 ton trucks as an 8 lug version, so they're pretty stout. Its only real weakness is the C-clip which really isn't that weak, and the lack of lower gearing. The problem you'll have is with the D44. They are fairly stout axles for 1/2 tons, but won't last with 38's. But then again, you said thornbirds :eek:, so you won't be going far anyways ::)
