    Just get thick gears. It's harder to find the thin 5.13s than the thick ones from what I hear. The thin ones are factory GM pieces, but the only thing they'll fit is a stock truck that came with 4.56 and up. The other carrier is far more poplular.

    DEFINITELY go with the thick gears. No sense in replacing a perfectly good carrier.

    rjfguitar, if I were you, I'd find a junkyard open carrier to replace your Gov-Loc if you're gonna spend any money on your 14 FF. Might as well do the whole job if you're gonna do it.
