    <font color="green"> Should be a Detroit in the rear and some of the fronts had limited slips. It's more likely that the front is open though. </font color>

    All the 14FF had No-Spins (lockers). Only a few of the D60 had limited slips; M1031 chassis Maintenance Truck and some of the M1028A1/A2 Radio shelter carriers, IIRC /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Ryan,
    The rear will either be open or have a Detroit. I talked to Roger about this a few weeks ago and he has only ever seen 1 14ff with 4:56's and a Gov Lock that was factory installed. Also the Dana might have the trac lok. It's a 50/50 shot on the front. Either way at the price he wants you better get them soon.

    a posi in the front would be a bit odd with an open rear...specially if they are outta the same truck... i hope its not a Gov-loc

    If it is a gov lock and 4:56's in the 14ff let me know and I will swap you a detroit with 4:56's for it. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif actually the M trucks were either open or detroited. I wanted a gov lock 4:56 axle for Donna and I can't find one so she will be stuck with a Detroit unless I do thick gears on a 4:10 carrier.
