    Got the 14 bolt ripped out of the truck today. It's all cleaned and trussed and ready for paint tomorrow night. Then all thats left is the 5.13's and detroit and it will be done. Hoping for re-install Tuesday night /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Looks good but aren't you going to shave that 14 bolt.

    Looking sweet /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gifI really like that rolling axle stand, that's a good idea. I need to build one like that to roll the 14FF I'm rebuilding to replace my current 14FF. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Yep, put the cover on with no guts /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Had to to get the truss fitted up and welded in. Didn't really feel comfortable grinding, welding, and sanding on the stuff with new bearings and gears in there /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif.

    The disc brakes are coming.... It's one of my next projects. My truck stops on a dime right now so I haven't been to concerned with it... Right now I'm just trying to get all the necessities done for the Raines trip.

    As for the stands, I have about 6 of them floating around here from all my different axle projects. 2 Dana 60's 1 Dana 44 and 2 14 Bolt FF's... Thats alot of weight to lug around without them being on wheels /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
