    I took a crate with a totally rebuilt 14FF with brand new 4.10 gears and Detroit Locker, complete with brand new disc brake system, calipers included, to Forward Air terminal in K.C. today.

    The crate weighed in right at 460 lbs. I would estimate the wood crate I built to weigh around 60 lbs. or so.

    Just for your future estimates, figure on the weight I quoted above. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I have crated a complete 14FF with the 13" drum brakes and that weighed in at 520 lbs. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    60 lbs. of brakes makes a lot of difference on these big heavy axles. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Oh yeah, this 14FF I rebuilt is going to the San Francisco Forward Air terminal for James (rampage) to pick up. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    How much for a 14bff? I'm too poor right now but in the future I'm going to be needing one and a 8 lug D44 or conversion for the front 10 bolt, but I don't have the tools or knowledge to rebuild/regear axles.
