    I found an axle out of a late 60's 3/4 ton chevy truck, I thought it might be a 14 bolt, but I only counted I think 10 or 12 bolts on the cover, and I believe it had floating axles, I don't know what it is, sorry for lack of info. I can get it for $100.

    Either an Eaton or a Dana 60. Might not be a bad deal depending what the overall conidtion and gears.

    That's what I was wondering. Well my neighbor just told me he has an axle I could HAVE. I went and looked at it, and the diff. cover is completly round with a drain plug on it, and I looked at some axles on the net and it looks like it is an Eaton? Never heard of them if anyone has more info on them lemme know thanks for your help.

    I ALSO found a 14 bolt but it's for a dually I believe. Any thing I can do to that to go on a K5?
