    Well today I seen (in a picture only) a 14 bolt chevy (same center section as the 14 bolt rear) front end. At first I thought I was cross eyed but sure as snow in the rockies it is a 14 bolt front end, not factory that's for sure. Iceman

    I found the picture again (the same one FRIZZLEFRY put up) and emailed the guy. This is his reply.

    Hi Jerry Jakester here from Big Boggin Offroad . The front end you see is
    one of many large extreme axles I have designed for the enthusiast. (car
    jumpers, rockcrawlers, mudders, ect..) It is a GM Corporate 14 Bolt
    front-end. It will take no less then 56,000 lbs. to the of the pumpkin to
    strain, stress, or flex. Peterson's Offroad should be issuing it by March.
    They will sell for around $3,100.00 complete. I also have Dana 70, Dana 60
    IFS, and 2 1/2 IFS front-ends . Heres my address for more info. If your
    interest is for fun, that's cool. every dream starts with an interest.
    happy new year.
    Thank you,

    Jakester

    <font color=purple> There's an ever elusive 12 bolt front end in the March issue of Four Wheeler magazine.

    Yep, that really is a 14 bolt front axle! I even contacted the guys at Wagoner Machine and they said the same thing.

    Anything can be built for the right amount of money!! [​IMG]
