    I wouldn't bother. The 10 bolt it weak. I'd get a 12 blt from another truck and build it. No point in spending money on such a weak rearend. 12 bolt rears are cheap, and easy to find, even in 6 lug version. Also, 14ff's are cheap and plentiful. A C-clip elimenator kit might cost you more than buying a junkyard 14ff. Just my $0.02.

    C-clip eliminators are not recommended for 4x4's because of the sideload that can be put on them in offroad situations. They are alot more suited for drag cars...thats what they were originally intended for.

    I would be more inclined to run a full floater kit than the eliminator kit. The wheel bearings in the eliminator aren't quite what they should be. The FF kit give you a nice set of big D60 size bearings on a real spindle. Plus takes the weight of the truck off the shafts.

    Making the world better, one truck at a time.
