    There are several out in this direction, its hit or miss anywhere. Your best bet is to keep checking the boards.

    You know, I dont know what the deal is here, but we have had non stop problems finding 14 bolts with decent gears. I will keep my eyes open, but the junk yards suck. You may try asking Lee over at Sandhills on Murchison road.

    Check spring lake auto salvage out on rt 210 past the new spring lake wal-mart. Was out there a few weeks ago and they had a few for $150. but they about to be crushed. Stop by and look if they are still in the back. Not sure about the gear ratio though.

    Well im out by raeford and their is nothing out here. Was out at a yard on 401 by the fed ex and the only one he had was from the new 4x4 shop called All american offroad and recovery thats in the yard. He was changing a 2wd 3/4 ton too 4wd for a customer and well he took out the 14bff and put in 10 bolt front and rears from a K5 b/c thats what the customer wanted. He has the 14bff listed for $750 on ebay, http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/76-Chevy-3-4-ton-Rear-Axle-3-73-Gears_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33728QQitemZ8045531695
    Can you believe that. And by the way the work I saw on the truck I was not impressed with. Some of it was down right scarry, but its not done either.

    I dont know what Lee has now but about 2 yaers ago I talked with him about a 14bff and he wanted 250.

    Yeah, I know that place by Raeford. I have been meaning to go by there in my junk and let him take a look at it.

    Honestly, if Lee has one with the gears you want, and the condition is good, I would probably buy it. Otherwise, your only other choice is to wait for someone close to sell theirs.

    Anyway, were do you live in Raeford? Do you work on post? What does your truck look like?

    Later, Rob

    Live buy East Hoke MIddle School. Im in the 3/504 for now but we will changing to 1/508 some time soon. Ive got a grey and black 86 k5 with 4 inch lift not in good shape right now. http://community.webshots.com/photo/93403451/1145450735034677465lUtQdU
    Ive got to do engine work soon that ive been putting off and along with that fix the seals on the trans since they are all leaking.
    As far as that shop, I didnt get to talk with Tim. Hes the owner/mechanic. Just looking at the work being done on the 3/4 ton is scarey. His welds were not good at all on the front sping eye and on the back hes got so much play between the u-bolts and blocks that I could stick my finger between the two.

    Haha, yeah i just got done with her when we got back from iraq, and then broke her like 3 weeks later, so shes been sitting a while, finally got the locker pulled out totry and see if i can fix the spider gears, adn now im being told that auburns cant be fixed, but i have a hard time believing that if teeth shear off the spider gears that the whole unit is bad. Any ways hopfully ill be up and running here soon! and the bigger one, that is currently on jack stands is mine..

    Not on Bragg but on Pope

    Well it will soon be Bragg so it counts LOL. I live over off of hope mills rd and cumberland rd. I drive (tow is a better description) the jimmy in the picture. It is still in work as well so it wont be on the trails anytime soon. On another note if any of you guys break and need a tow give me a call. I just got my trailer which between the truck and the trailer I can tow up to 9,000lbs on the trailer. Will be a gas fee involved of course but I wont kill you on a price for local hauls. My cell number is 1-910-818-3929 if you need any help with anything.

    I got the parts in, but the guys up at performance off-road, were getting like 4 trucks ready to go to URE, so needless to say she aint up and running yet, man i was really looking forward to it. I'd like to get it up and going on monday but i know that they are going to be working on some broke trunks from this weekend. Does anyone know of anywhere around here that can repair a wounded Auburn locker, I bought the repair kit for it so i have the replacements that it requires. Just let me know, thanks!

    Also i fyou not doing anythign tomorrow theres a gun show at the colleseum from 9-5.
