    i'm wanting to regear my 10bolt to 4.56 because i'm basically a pavement pounder that likes curbes and some camping once in a while so i didn't feel the need for a 14B, but the more i read about them the more i feel like i want one, i'm spending alot on the regear so i think i might as well just get the 14B,, if i go to a junkyard, what kinda truck can i pull from to get some 4.56's that directly bolt on my k5 with no mods /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif?

    A 14bff from a 3/4 ton is as close as a direct bolt in as they come, but the wheels will be 8 lug, and the driveshaft will need a hybrid u joint. There are a couple of other little quirks that I'm sure I'm missing.

    If you want a set of 4:56s for a 14FF, look for a delivery van, based on a GM chassis, I got 4:56s and a locker for one for $80, get the gears and sold the locker for $325. Look for anything with duals, they generally have steap gears, small school bus, vans, etc.
