    I just went out and measured mine and it looks to be 42 1/2
    That is on a 3/4 ton 14FF
    Middle of the hole to middle of the hole.

    You can use any 1 ton 14FF on your '69 without doing any relocations of the spring perches. The shock mounts would need to be relocated, though.

    Good that yours is 42.5, cuz that is what is supposed to be.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    Aren't the '67 to '72 trucks all the narrower perches? Like those on the 1 ton rears? Or are there some years you can use a 3/4 ton wider perch on?
    Personally, I have never messed with the '67 to '72 trucks. So, I'm just passing what I have heard. [​IMG]

    68SWB,

    I was just taking a few measurements last night....! [​IMG]

    The 12-Bolt that I have under my '72 appears to be 40" (It's hard to get a perfectly straight measurement with the diff in the way....)

    The 14BFF sitting in the "on deck circle" measures what appears to be 42.5" like everyone else is saying.....even HARDER to get a straight measurement (bigger pumpkin!)

    Good thing I just bought a new die-grinder.....looks like I'll get to practice with it on the 14BFF.....cutting off the spring perches and shock mounts! [​IMG]
