Where to begin? Axle questions.

Well then. I got a lift for Christmas and I plan to do a SOA but don't intend on doing so until I find new axles. I know you guys tend to use the term 'pavement princess' etc, etc but that's pretty much what I plan to have. I want my rig to simply be tall and massive, 40+ tires. I'll be dropping in a 350 later on. I won't be doing too much stuff outside of pavement, but I plan to still try and get the thing dirty. I need to know what type of axle would you suggest, front and rear, for a rig that'll spend 80% of it's life on the pavement with a v8 and 40+ tires.

I would think that with the V8 and 40's your going to want 1ton gear but if you going to just be cruising around town in it you could run some 44's out of a Waggy or Scout. You should be able to get away with running stock shafts unless you get heavy footed and try to smokem'

as stated dana 44's or 44 front 9" rear.. Or look for a 1970's J truck donor.. they had a 60 rear and 44 front, or maybe even a 60 front that might work best.
