    I remember someone making a conversion kit for the corporate 12bolt, can anyone remember who? I think it was Warn. Has anyone done this and is it worth it? I know I should just save up some dough for a 14bolt but I really don't have the change and am desperately looking to ditch the semi-floating setup. Thanks for any info.

    The Warn kit for a 10 bolt is about $850 dlls. and about $100 more if you want locking hubs, I guess it would be about the same for a 12 bolt. I think I would look for a 6 lug 14 bolt semi floater instead.

    800 BUCKS?! /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif Fack that, I only paid 5 for the truck in the first place. I'm running 33's and looking to go with 35's so the 12 bolt I think will hold up to those medium sized tires, I just didn't like the semi-floating design and wanted the advantages of a full-floater. Guess it's time to hit the junk yard though, find me a 14bolt for FREE!
    One more quick question: Is there a six lug, full-floating axle I could find and possibly swap parts with my 12 bolt? Sort of like finding all the pieces that you can buy in a conversion kit but in some axle at the dump instead. Thanks for the input everyone.
