    Have been, but get conflicting answers to some question. This may just be a difference in opinion, but his is the most knowledgeable site on the internet.

    Do a search develope your idea and then post the idea and ask for advice widdle the many ideas down to 1 or 2 that you feel will work best for your type of wheeling then ask. Like you said you have gotten conflicting answers and this is the largest fullsize chevy data base on the net that I have found. There are many people and therefore many different opinions on this site so you kinda have to develop your own. And as far as the search I had to I have been on here almost 2 years and were my first. If I rambled I apologize. :D

    not a whole lot of help but i haven't heard of anyone complaining about the swap to disc brakes on their 14bff.
    Not 100% sure but willing to be you're going to have to lengthen your driveshafts.
