    Use of the 14FF axle shafts in the Eaton rear end will let you use the 14FF Detroit locker. Unless your talking about a Dana 60 rear axle? Which axle do you have?

    I have a Dana 60 rear that will work in your truck. Same pad width. 4.10s open and I have posi for it. Going 6 lug and don't need it.

    Buy a Detroit for a 14FF and use it in the stock Eaton Carrier. Use your axleshafts from the 14FF and your set. A lot stronger axleshaft splines in the process too.

    thanks for the advise the 14 has a factory locker in it so I guess I will just swap them in and hope it works out.

    hold on... the what your calling the stock locker is a Gov-Loc unless it came from a CUCV. Not the same thing as a detroit... but you would want to research if it is a direct swap or not. The GovLock uses a different carrier than the open diff.
