    For your own info

    The 14FF in a crate, like I built, and shown on BlazinOR's site, weighs 520 lbs.

    The D60 in a crate, similar like the one for the 14FF's, weighs 640 lbs.

    Use these numbers as guides for the next axles you are planning to buy or ship.

    OH MY GOD! You mean to tell me that a D60 weighs 3 or 4 times what a D44 or 10 bolt weighs? WOW. We just put my new 10 bolt under today, we took it out of the truck by hand. I don't think we'd do that with a D60.

    Wow I always thought the 14bolt FF weighed more than a Front D60. I guess that's what I get for thinking.

    If you didn't built it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?

    Yeah, when I built a crate and shipped a Dana 60 front, my weight was 666lbs.
    For the 14bolt it was 525lbs.

    Hey 84 Chev, you can put a D60 under the truck by yourself....there are ways....just have to have a lot of enginuity (sp?). I put both my 1 ton axles under by myself [​IMG]. But now, I have back aches [​IMG]

    BUT, Boss also looks BUFF!!! [​IMG]

    I saw a pic of him on an older site and he has got muscle! Guess that goes with removing and installing the axles all the time! [​IMG]

    I weigh 125 lbs and I'm 5'4" tall. I doubt it. I'm on my 3rd set of axles and I swear to God I'm not swapping another one until I can get a D60 and a FF 14 bolt. Right now I've got a 10 bolt/semi floating 14 bolt. Both are 4.10 geared, rear is a posi.
