rehab\'ing a junkyard 14 bolt I'm still hung up on them 14 bolts(sf) I found at the junkyard. I've been trying to do some research on tha big axle, and so far, it's turned out to be heavy duty, and very heavy. Don't know if my weeny diesel could move it around. Someone said I could still use 15" wheels on the 14 bolt. Are you sure? I found some inexpensive 8 lug steel wheels. Brand name. Put the purchase price of the junkyard axle, minus core, at $60. How much would it cost to rehab it? It'll need new bearings, seals, gaskets, etc. Carrier will have to be reset(if equipped with a decent gear). Should I get lucky and grab one with a factory gov lock, how much to rebuild it as well? Basically, I'm looking for one price, a ball park of what I'd have to dish out altogether. I know I'd need a new u joint as well. Is doing all this really worth it? What would the upgrade to a monster 14 bolt get me that the weenie 10 bolt can't? Help me justify this and I might do it. Detroit and all. Would my 35's still get me enough ground clearance to effectively use the 14 bolt off road? Have I burned your brain yet with all these questions?
