the 7.5 is pretty weak. I'd upgrade if it were me. Really it depends on the tires you'll be running on if it will hold up. You won't break it if you can't get traction, but if you do get traction, the bigger motor will break it faster.

John is correct. The 7.5 will work if you run it with street tires and never get traction. If your planning on running it with over sized tires, I wouldn't recommend it. Larger tires cause more leverage on the axle shafts and gears. I guess it all depends on what you want out of the axle and how you drive it.

+3, for the reasons stated above. A 7.5" axle and a V8 together can be a bad combination.
