I could be wrong time will tell I guess, but I figure it'll hold up till I swap out for the bigger axles.
Your version of beating the crap out of something and mine are two different worlds.

For the pre-97 trucks you could get away with d44 outers and a 31 spline rear.

I wonder but have no idea if itd would be even possible but do you think you could get a spindle lift from a bigger truck get the control arms and ball joints and fab it all up so you can run a heavier duty bearing to toss 37s hmmmm. Its take som fab work but i will do some research and see of its possible. Sorry if it sounds too crazy for yall

----------

I know they make f150 lift spindles so im wondering if the spindle is bigger and able to hold a 37 inch tire?

There really aren't any other options that are sane.
