    No preference really. Got about 8 sets to choose from locally that my mud racing friends have laying around from 1g to 3g from factory to built up.

    I'm not a Hugh fan of the size of these or axle techs 4000, but like the price VS the set I priced out for D80 6200 per axle. Trying to save for them USDs

    Factory belt is too big as PSC setup runs a smaller pulley. Running Belt 4PK-1040 on my 3.4 w/PSC tc pump.

    Gotcha. Yea the D80 setup even through ECGS is a lot of money. 40 spline stuff is no cheap. Buggy is gonna be beast after that upgrade though.

    Axletechs are technically a 9 ton I believe. They're beefier than the 5ton Rockwell's and Merritors. I have a set in the shop waiting for me to get less broke

    :D

    Weird that your truck eats up center bearings. I put an OEM one in, shimmed down 1/2” back in 2014 and I’ve been good ever since. It was my DD for a while (20-30k miles)and I’m definitely higher ride height than you too

    I didnt start eating bearings until I put the 80 axle in and bumped up to 37s. Been through 3, 2 OEM.
