    Looking for a 14 Bolt w/ 4:10 gears 40" center-to-center spring perch width (I think this is standard on all K-30 & 1 ton vans) shock mounts arent a concern as well as drums. Will pay more for a locker needs to be within a two hour driving distance of colorado springs. thanks

    If you don't mind getting sweaty, there are usually plenty of 14 bolt rears at A1 Auto Recyclers on the south end of town. They get $75 for a complete unit. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Just a couple of weeks ago there was a complete one under a 3/4-ton pickup that was already unbolted and ready to carry away. I know, because ktedesco and I unbolted it, so we could get the springs off of the truck! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif That one doesn't have the mounts in the right spots, but they aren't terribly difficult to move.

    It only costs $1 to get in the place, then you can wander around to your hearts content. The GM vans are way at the back of the property, on the left side. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif Oh yeah, they provide wheelbarrows to haul your tools and smaller parts around in. If you ask nicely, I'll bet the guys working the lot with the front loader would pick up the axle and load it up for ya. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Also check out the "For Sale" section of colorado4x4.org, I saw a 14bff with 4.10's on there not too long ago. It was pretty cheap IIRC. I was at A1 the other day and the axle Harry and I unbolted had the gears and carrier stripped out. I did see an other one that was missing the axle shafts but those could be found easily.

    Go to the very end of Las Vegas, then turn right. A1 is just a short ways down the road, on your right. They're next to the paintball place. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
