    In case I completely missed the boat, why did Warn discontinue the Full Float kits for the smaller axles??

    When they did make the kits, how much did they cost?

    I don't think it was a money maker for them, the kit was about $800 and that's hard to justify when you can just put in a 14FF for way less. I'm still a little surprised they dropped it because the only parts of the kit that weren't used in other kits were the spindle and axleshaft. You could still create a 12BFF using a Warn 9" kit with custom shafts and new weld on housing ends. You'd have to be pretty motivated to do that compared to building a 9" or slapping in a 14 bolt.

    Another problem is that it doesn't really increase the overall strength of the vehicle's drivetrain that much. I ran 37's on my 12BFF and could probably get away with 37's on the front with superiors and CTM's but you're kind of pushing it. The FF feature is nice just for durability and security.

    Your right, they do have the 12 bolt FF kit listed for 650.00
