Not likely, if you want any thing decent.
Front or rear.

If he says rear, I will punch him in his blue waffle. That isn't an upgrade from an 8.25. It's like a replacement.

I'm saying.
The only fault I see with an 8.25 is the c clips but I've never seen one break.

It has a few plus factors. I don't know if I'd run one though.

Deeper gears. But the 8.25 won't go deeper than 4.88.

Lock outs. Tougher ring gear. It's a plus.

Other than being able to turn them off to drive home, why are lockouts better? All I hear about is people blowing up hubs and how they suck to replace...
