    Just wanted to stop in here and introduce myself. I live in sunny San Diego and I’m in the process of rebuilding my first truck. (1980 K10) My plans are to build a good dependable DD and off road truck. My plans for mods are…. 383 Stroker engine, Dynatrac Pro 60 Series axle assembly for the rear, Chrome-moly shafts for the stock front dyna 44. And I’m sure there will more it never ends. Do you guys think the dynatrac rear end is over kill?

    <font color="green"> I think that you'd be better off spending the $4000 elsewhere... Go with a 14b FF, they're cheap and plentiful. If you want to stay with the 6 lug then either convert the FF to 6 lug or get a 14b SF, they are pretty close to a D60 in strength. </font color>

    What would it cost me to buy and build a strong 14b FF with six lugs? Is 4 grand over kill for the dynatrac axle even though it comes with disc brakes and bullet proof?

    YES it is WAY to much . do you have a 12 bolt rear ? if so u could beef that up enuff to run 35s and be fine . or go with the 14 bolt sf 6 lug.

    for $4000 you could get a dana 60 front and a 14ff rear and 8lug rims and a detroit locker for the rear /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
    front dana 60 under $2000
    rear 14ff under $300
    detroit for the rear $330
    new 8 lug rims ???? depends on what style you want
    oh and welcome to ck5 /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Well I have a ten bolt in the rear right now and have 6 lug 35" tires right now and I dont wana spend the money for new 8 lug rims, I wana stay with 6 lugs. For the front end I was planing to put stronger axles and a locker. How much does it cost to convert a 14FF to 6 lugs?
