A buddy has some ten bolt front and rears out of a '73 C10 that he is willing to give me. I can't use the front because it's a passenger drop, but the rear sounds perfect. From what I can find out, it's almost exactly the same thing as a Jeep D44 axle, it's even the right width. The issue here is that it's a six lug axle and I don't want to run two different sets of wheels. I'd rather keep my Jeep wheels on both axles.
What are my options for keeping my stock wheels? Is it worth it to do a ten bolt swap? What kind of locker options do I have with a ten bolt? Same as a D44?
