Looking for dependability/ reliability first and foremost, it is used as my DD so some on road manners would be nice. The plan is to use it as a mild off-road rig i.e mudding around the farm. Some lighter rock trails around the Ohio and surrounding states and camping. I've been reading all I can on rear axles, ford 8.8 and the 14bolt. As for front axles not quite sure what i should be looking for same for tranmissions, and Xcase.
