Might as well get a dynatrac rear 60 while you are at it, a 9" isn't really up to the task of that many ponies and those big meats. ;)

edit: BTW, congrats on winning the lottery!!!

Sounds like a bad ass rig man, same set up I plan to someday put into my truck as far as the engine and tranny combo goes....same with the rear end - havent decided if I want the ranger on a solid axle or if I want a highly modified TTB for the dunes yet though....
