    I'm confused, Does anyone make a larger then 5.13 gear set for a 14 bolt? I was just in the study (restroom) reading some old magizines and a couple of the trucks,said they had 5.38 in a 14 Bolt. I'm running 42"s and looking to go 44" boggers would like to go 5.38 if someone makes them. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I've never seen anything lower than 5.13's advertised for the 14 bolt FF. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    That ratio is probably available for the 14 semi-floater. Not sure though.

    I did some research before and the lowest available is 5.13

    Like wes said, maybe the 9.5" 14 bolt has this available.

    Topic gets kicked around on Pirate4x4 quite a bit... seems max 5.13 ratio is the reason guys will run a Dana 60 or 70 instead.

    Just add another t-case! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Why doesnt a company come out with lower gears for the 14ff? is there a reason that they cant be made?

    Not enough demand for them I guess. I bet if everyone were to swamp name brand ring & pinion manufacturers with requests for lower gears for the 14FF, they could make something. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
