What got to me is the fact that the cummins W250 uses the smallest studs with the heaviest-duty axle and heaviest engine. Snapped one stud already.... and I load the truck to gross 10,000# whenever it suits me

Then added ~50# of rolling mass to each corner going from 235/85R16 to 295/70R17 (steel wheels). Now add the extra 2" of aluminum spacer. Darn rights I want bigger studs.
The wheel studs aren't the only thing that Dodge went cheap on when they built them. That's why we are rebuilding them better.
