What do you people think???

I have a delima. I have 2 project trucks, one of which is my daily driver(that would technically make it not aa project wouldn't it?). One Is my Crewcab. The other Is an 82 Isuzu P'UP. Now you might not think much of the P'UP, But I have a Caddy 500 and TH400 dying to find a new home. I can easily find a divorse mount 205 for this thing to make the driveliine connect. My Delima is, what axles to use for both. Do I spend 1200 on Rockwells for the Crewcab and put the 60/14 in the Isuzu? Or just throw the toy front end I have in the isuzu and wait to break parts? I am starting the tear down of the P'UP in a week or 2 to get it ready for a SFA. I think I would rather have the heavy duty stuff in each than have to replace parts almost imediatel on the Zoo. Anyone have any ideas or insight on this.

Re: What do you people think???

All I have to say is if you go with rockwells on the crew cab, you better be running some big tires to work with that gear ratio that they come with. Something around 44". And if you have the means, go ahead and do it, throw the 60/14ff in the little truck, and the rockwells in the big truck.

That is about what i had in mind. The crewcab would still be legal with that setup and I am sure I can make the isuzu legal somehow. I would have to put those 4" spring perches on the rockwells to get 'em to fit under the truck anyway so it would give the little extra lift to fit the 44's
