    Ever looked at the scary steering page. Tell me the point of any of those swaps...

    Now, Really I have no idea on why anyone would do that. I could be wrong too, but I do know that some of the parts are interchangeable

    i know detroit doesn't make a locker for the eaton anymore, and you can take a 14bff detroit, put it in a eaton carrier and use the 14bff shafts to have a eaton with a new detroit.
    im sure someone did just the oposite.
