and speaking of "dead hooking", make sure you put some thought
in your pinion and driveshaft yokes, tho's puppies realy take some
torque when good ol' captain hook comes ah hooking :wink:
strange, mark williams, moser, and others that can take the torque :wink:

I'm running a pretty big tire,so I don't think traction will be a problem.Ran 6.90s on that shaft before (28" tire) with no problems.Had plenty of bite then,would carry driver side front tire for about 20 feet,6-8" high.But still had a sucky 1.70 60 foot.As far as "dead hooking",I was dumb.What the hell else could it mean?? ops:Got a billet yoke on the rear.Just a Spicer(forged?) on the tranny.Yokes hold 1350 joints,shaft only takes 1310s.That is my biggest concern.Plus my frame won't exactly clear a bigger shaft.Guess it's time to start cutting.
