    I was wondering about the 14 Bolt and the clearance issues and looked at the technical page Axle Identification Chart and found two different 14 bolts. One looks like it wouldn't have as much clearance problems like others have talked about. 14 bolt being the AZ Rock Anchor. thinking about the 14bolt pros and cons. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    The smaller 14b is a semi-float one so it is not as strong as the full float. the 14bff can be shaved a good bit and gain about 1/2-1" of ground clearance, plus the parts for them are cheap.

    Thanks it doesn't say anything about it be a semi-float or full-float. That answered my question. Definitely want the 14 Bolt FF

    You want a 14BFF unless you are trying to stay 6 lug and/or you are running smaller tires and are worried about weight/ground clearance.
