    Lots o\' questions

    Ok here I go, lots of questions:
    How much does a ff 14 bolt really weigh? How much does a rear dana 60 really weigh? What modifications would be required to install a rear dana 60 in a blazer? What vehicles had them? Dodge had them right? Are the rear dana 60s hard to find and expensive?

    A 14 bolt FF with drum brakes weighs in at 525 lbs or so. Roughly 200 lbs more than a 10 or 12 bolt.

    Less, it'd have to, it's physically smaller than the 14 bolt FF.
