    I was in the boneyard the other day, and I found a 14 bolt on a rack that was 67" wide, single wheel, with 4.56's in it. Is this a CUCV axle and does it have a detroit in it already??

    Was the truck a camoflage color?

    Just because its got 4.56 gears does not automatically make it a CUCV truck.

    The best way to tell what the truck is, is by getting the VIN and let us decode it for you.

    Go back and search for some numbers which are stamped on the tubes.
    The numbers are what they call the BOM, or Bill Of Materials, and decoding those numbers will tell what you have.

    Measure the spring perches too. Hard to tell what it is with out knowing what it came from.I'm guessing you are doing the 14ff swap?
