I would think you would have to lift it pretty high to clear the toploading pumpkin. But with enough money, anything is possible.

why hasnt anyone tried rockwells for SAS. :D
Is it not possible?

i debated it a while back and decided that it was to much unsprung weight, the cost to build them is very little compared to say a D60 so pricing isnt to bad, unless you run the chromo axles which are around 1500 per side :eek: , and like said before their may be clearance issues with the pinion brake

The weight is a major issue with Rockwells.

i would be damned if i only ran a 40 inch tire with those axles, hell i hate having 39.5's with my rear 60 that has been shaved. just seems to me like 44+" tires and 2 1/2 tons go good together. :D

I thought i heard somewhere that you should run no less than 44" tires with rockwells.

Nobody likes to run smaller than 44's because I think the highest gear you can get for rockwells is 6.72's And also the ground clearance issue. A friend of mine has a jeep with Rockwells and 52" Michellans (sp?) And the thing is still pretty low geared.

I havent had any problems with it and have thrashed the hell out of the truck, only things that have broke are 4 warn premiem hubs, so i dont run those anymore just run drive flanges, and one detroit locker that was taken out by the first hub that went,(detroit rep sent me replacement parts for free)since i figured all that out i have zero problems, however i just know with a 42" TSL that i would seriously be pushing the limits of the axle and dont really want to blow it to hell and back when i could sell it and atleast get a little money from it since it has some pretty nice parts in it and was completly rebuilt. as far as the greyrock ride goes, it depends if i get my exo/flatbed done by then, which means i have to finish up with my buddies bronco, bend all my stuff, cuss alot, drink many beers inbetween cusing fits :D and then start :welder: shit up

another problem is the brakes. running the stock brakes makes it to wide and heavy, so most people do pinion brakes. But I would't want to drive on the street with pinion brakes, having a 6.72 advantage on the wheels for braking could get a little twitchy! :eek:
