Bingo. However, a 4 bolt main is an overkill for everyday use. Unless it'* your race car or modified very heavily, a 2 bolt main is VERY feasible.
Very true... But I would no hesitate on a 4 bolt if I came across one.... I have seen a few 350 4 bolts.... But the 400 4 bolt is few and far between... Its easy to get a 400 SB to make 400 - 500 hp

no lol. I've been looking for a winter beater and this is perfect for me. My family doesn't drive our other 4wd trucks in the winter because they're "too nice to get salt on"
