    I doubt it will ever happen. I'm surprised they still build axles at all. My best solution would be to look at having ferd 9" housing ends welded to your axle and use their 9" full floater kit with 30 spline GM inners and the heavy duty hubs. They might not want to sell you the shafts but double splined shafts are not hard to get.

    Andy Byrum (don't know his screen name, K10andymatic maybe?) has a FF 12 bolt that may not be the best match for his new D60F so you could contact him for a used kit/axle.

    Verify that warn builds the 9" FF kit before you act on the above plan.

    The speriors in a stock design shaft are yeilding awsome results, and a cheaper alternative to the Full float kits (if available). You should snap a driveshaft/u-joint or ring/pinion before the axle lets go on you.

    Running a good semi float shaft should work pretty well for you, the full float is a nice measure of protection against a big problem (wheel coming off at speed) but the semi float superiors hold up well to 35-ish tires.
