    So what kind of price is fair on a 'turn key' 14 bolt sf or ff? I don't know the gears and neither has a locker. Both are out of a 3/4 ton. I'm not sure of the year they are out of.

    If these are out of 2wd trucks the shockmounts on them will be the 'longer' kind (the ones that hang down below the axle)
    Am I on track?

    Get the full floater if you can, and no the 2wd drive as far as i remember are the same shock mounts as a regular 4x4 14 bolt. should just bolt right in.

    73 Blazer 1Ton 6inch lift, 3 inch body, 36 inch swampers
    79 3/4 ton suburban, soon to be 6 inch lift, 3 inch body, and 44 in boggers. Oh ya

    The FF that I used was out of a 2 wheel drive.
    I had to blow the mounts off and relocate them, with the shock fully extended they were not even close to going in.
    Shannon(mudhog) had the same thing when he swapped his out, he used longer shocks on his.
    Before I took the 12 bolt out I measuerd the shock with the axle at full droop and placed the shocks at the same measurement on the FF.

    Savage1 and I pulled a 14 FF out of an 80 2WD and it bolted right up to my 75 Blazer. The whole cost of it drum to drum with e-brake cables and u-bolts cost $120 from a junk yard here in California. It is open with 4.10 gears and wasn't hard for me to weld up the spiders.

    I got mine for $95 from the junkyard Complete. cou;d have just bolted it right up. And yes you are correct about the shock mounts being lower on a 2wd axle compared to the 4wd axle. I just relocated my rear shocks al together and solved that problem.
