10.5 Rear Axle

I got a truck that was in a accident awhile back and it bent one of the axle tubes, so i went to the local junkyard and bought a new the rear axle, and i was wondering if there was any upgrades that i should(could) do to make the rear end stronger, and preform better?

You could throw on a bigger diff cover. Also use a quality differential fluid.

I like locker for offroading. Ran in it previous truck. Never a promblem.
I would imagine no line and #### would be easier

I agree to get one if your using the truck for off roading. But it's not necessary IMO for a street truck.

Re: 10.5 Rear Axle

I used a Detroit locker on an off-road vehicle it worked well I preferred the true track though for everyday use.
