    how hard to find a 14ff w/ 3.73\'s??

    I need to get a Corporate 14 bolt full floater with 3.73 gears. I'd like a traction device, but can live without one for now. Anyone have any ideas where to find one or even know of one?? It's going under my /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif.

    Why do you need 3.73's?

    I got 3.73's in my front Dana 44 and don't have the cash to convert it, and I'd still like to offroad till I can afford a better front axle all together. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Are the rear axle assemblies interchangable between 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive suburbans (73-89)?

    My 14bff came out of a '76 3/4 ton pick up, and also had the 3.73 with the Gov-Loc. Would rather have the 14bff gov-loc over the 10 bolt unit and also the open carrier, although now i kinds need to get a better locking unit for it, as it still slips too much.

    I don't know and I have been living here for a while. Black road auto savlage in Santa Maria comes to mind, but I feel they are a bit pricey. I got most my used stuff by going though the Easy Ad

    My brother and I have a 14 bolt with 3.73 in it, but I got dibs on it.

    Pretty much every time i go into the junkyard around here i see about 3 or 4 14ff's... usually 3.73's sometimes 4.10's.
