will stock axles hold up?
 
Just recently bought a SBC 406 to put in my jeep. Has about 400 hp. I am running stock axles with 35's. Will the axles hold up running that much horsepower and tire? If not, what would be a good way to beef up the axles I have?

Not at all. I would reccomend at least 3/4 ton axles.

Like a Chevy 12 bolt or Ford 8.8 with 4.10 gears? Is it relatively easy to install axles?

If you can put the engine in you will have no problems with an axle

No like a Dana 60 in the front and a Dana 70 or 80 in the rear with 400hp to the ground and running 35 ins. of rubber! :eek:

Ford or chevy 44 or chevy 10b front and dana70 or chevy 14bolt rear.

If you want it narrower than full width then wagoneer wide track d44 front c&c 14bolt rear.

Dana 60 front would be nice, but not really needed for 35s.



Motor specs? I sure have seen a lot of "400" hp small blocks that felt like a 300hp small block.
