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...

Luke, read through this when you get bored. Pay attention to what Mr.Blaine says.

Will do.
I feel they aren't that bad work with? I've dealt with them before and it was not that bad.

Bleh, throttle position sensor needs replaced and I need to put a downturn+hanger on this exhaust, but we're supposed to be getting like 8 inches of snow.
