    Guy on another board is selling a 14b SF for 25 smackers. Wheel the truck pretty hard, looking to go to 35's. I figure the SF will work, haven't broke the 10bolts after a year of hard wheelin. Will the SF for 25 smackers be a good deal? I'll probably go to a 3/4 ton front 10 bolt in the spring. Also, will my 15 inch wheels fit on the SF?

    Thanks guys.

    John,

    For $25. I would do it. The 14BSF is a good choice for mild 4 whelling. My brother ran one for years in a Sub with 35's all over Tellico and Moab. I had on with my fullsize K5 with a 454 and Doubler. I broke an axle twice- one time power braking in double low with the brakes on hard looking for axle wrap, and another time when I was doing some good burnouts with 38's. You could also find some axles/drums from a 6 lug 14BSF, and keep your same wheels.

    Picture time- my bro's Sub with 6 lug 14BSF on Pritchet Canyon a few years ago:

    What set-up are you running with the 10 bolts?.. Re-gear? What size tires/lift? What size engine? What year truck? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Eight lug, but I'll probably try to go to six lug so I can keep my wheels...
