    Just finally dived into my 14B FF and the rear case is the open style. Recommendations on where to find the best price on the no-spin? I'm in WA state.

    Got mine from 4 Wheel parts a few months ago. Wanted like 400 but haggled them down to 320 or so and free shipping.

    I paid $125 for one with less than 10K miles on it :grin:

    Didn't even need it it the time, but couldn't say no either.

    Any of the places in the magazines will have decent prices. And most will price match, even with internet prices.

    Here are some links for you:

    www.performanceoffroadcenter.com
    www.partsmikeparts.com
    www.4wheelparts.com
    www.ring-pinion.com Randy's
    www.currieenterprises.com
    www.dynatrac.com
    www.polyperformance.com
    www.offroaddesign.com
    www.4wheelcustoms.com
    www.peakempire.com

    Some of the above dont list them on their sites, so calling would be best. And even if they are listed and have a higher price, most price match.

    Not sure if ORD carries Detroits, but they are always great to deal with so I included them! :thumb:

    i got my for 318 or 320 . Go it out of one of the four wheeler mags( national tire and wheel or 4 wheel parts). What i did was call up and say i wanted a 14 bolt locker detrioit locker andthen I would confirm the price in the mag was 318. but they said i must be looking at a older one(mag) becuase they went up in price to whatever it is now. then i just said oh that S**Ks i only got 318 for it and then ask if they can do the old price or say u cant get it. thats what I did and they asked the manager and he said ok.
    give it a shot worked for me might for you. just make it sound like ur real disapointed and ask the guy nicely if there anything he can do on the price. (unless you can find something cheaper online) good luck.

    Yup. It only took me 3 weeks to get the locker installed in the 14B. The down side is the axle has been on jacks stands next to the D60 in my garage for about 10 months:frown1: I've got a HD TH400, 32 spline t-cases (203, 205 & 208), a 14BFF w/ detroit & 4.56's; Dana 60 w/ 4.56's, three different lifts, zero-rates, and 38's all in the garage. One of these days I might just put it under something:D
