    For $600 I just picked up a 14FF with a 4.56 ratio and a Detroit in it from Chris @ ventures truck parts in Utah. I'm in California, and he was able to ship it to me for $178. He said he has a lot of 14Bs just like this, so if anyones looking around for an axle, you might give him a call. 1-800-464-1713 Hope this helps someone out!

    That seems kinda steep, but 4.56's aren't that easy to find. So if you buy a 4.10 open carrier 14-bolt for say $200, then buy a 4.56 carrier, 4.56 gears, bearings, seals, etc. and the Detroit Locker, then pay someone to put it all in, you'll be way over $800. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif You could save a few bucks by going with the thick 4.56's to fit the 4.10 carrier, but you're still looking at a big chunk of cash.

    There is a carrier change from 4.10 to 4.56 /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif? Now I need to do some re-thinking /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif.

    Yep, but lots of places sell 4.56's with a thick ring gear that will fit onto a 4.10 carrier. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Yeah you are right HarryH3. Someone would spend over 800.00 to rebuild a 14FF like the one he bought for 600.00. But if you are lucky enough or patienced enough, you might could find one with 4.56 gear already in it for 200.00 add the detroit and be done for under 600.00 But like you said those are rare. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Yeah, if you just want to be able to finish your truck and drive it it's easier to just cough up the cash. Just dropping in a Detroit Locker alone would set ya back at least $300.
