    The 'soft' part is revision to the original design to eliminate some of the clunking & banging. I think all the light-duty applications have all been revised, the medium/heavy duty are still the original design.

    There is only one ... Detroit for a 14bff. May depend on what axle you're ordering it for, but I believe there's only one Detroit for any given app.

    4wheel parts

    I just ordered a detroit and 5.38 gears from 4wheel parts. Totaled about $775 and free shipping.

    Almost got credit card happy and ordered some 44" boggers then smartened up a bit. Gotta pay this stuff off first.

    Know where I can get some cheap drive flanges?

    :doah:

    That place is worse than PORC. ::shrug:: Ain't NOTHING free with them :haha:

    Still, if you're happy, cool. The only thing I buy from 4WPW is their TTC videos, as (1) they're the only places that sells them and (2) they're hard to screw up.

    You can also try complete offroad. For me, the free shipping is a big help.
