Wrong forum I know, but I'm leaning on my 12 bolt pretty hard and need to upgrade ring gear bolts. What's the best ring gear bolt available for a 12 bolt?

Thanks,
Martin

Just food for thought, so far we've been 1.17 60ft on the rear tires on a 12-bolt @ 3050lbs on 10.5w's. - Set-up right they take more power than most give them credit for.
I agree, we've gone 1.15 - 1.16 numerous times on the W's at 3000 with no problems so far with the ring/pinion. We did have the ring gear bolts back out one time, but other than that no problems.

Thanks,
Martin

The only issue I've heard are some guys twisting/bending the axles tubes, but most those were not narrow rears. - IIRC I'm something like 42" axle flange to axle flange. Got a really stout back brace idea in mind for it when we re-do somethings after the chassis cert runs up.
