    14B rears are beefy, cheap, but they have low ground clearance, gears only go as low as 5.13's and their is no selectable locker options at the moment. Although the 14b stuff is cheaper than d60

    d60 rears have better clearance, better locker and gear selection down as low as 7.17 or something like that, more expensive and not as beefy as the 14b except you can use dana 70 stub shafts I believe /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
