    After destroying my 10 bolt gov-bomb, I thought I'd post the question to see how many have it installed. While doing so, I decided to extend the poll to aftermarket traction aids as well. What kind do you have?

    Factory installed will list either a G80 or G85 in the RPO code list.

    I have the gov bomb on the suburban and an open 14 bolt on my sierra. The bomb works great for me. It's a tank in the snow and the mud and I don't think I could go back to having just an open diff. As far as durability goes, We'll I think you've seen just how much abuse they will take before they blow.

    I guess I should have allowed for multiple responses, so you could vote both. I manually added the vote for "open"
