    Remember, I did find the deal, but the advice didn't hurt!
    The only pay back I can think of is buying you a bunch of beer if you can come to my place on the 16th.
    My wife is going out of town so a bunch of us are having the "He man women haters" party (no offence to the women).
    It's an all guys party, hope to have a band, kegs etc. sorry, no one under 21 allowed. I have 140 acres to play on, a pool table, full bar and overlook Lake Dillon. What do you think?

    1st Q&A- It's 70 miles west of Denver on I-70 (towns/ski areas- Breckenrige,Copper Mtn, Keystone, A basin, Frisco).
    2nd - We are going Wheelin, remember. There just happens to also be a party.
    3rd - That is an option that may also happen, I just don't want get anyone in trouble with there wives (Me Included![​IMG]) and I don't want to dump too much $$ into the party unless guys want to chip in. Remember, I need $500 for some axles?
    I'm sending some PM about it to some other CK5ers to ask them.
    Something to think about, there is a bunch of room for people to stay and even camp out if they want to. No one bothers me up here and it's going to be a good time. I think it should be a manditory meeting or something.......HaHa
    <font color=red>Back on the subject:<font color=black> I haven't picked up the axles yet and still need to really check them out. Didn't some of the 14B have C-clips and some not? how can I tell?
    What about u joint #s and do I need to change driveshaft lenght or yoke?
    What is the best reweld location for shocks(stock) if I'm going to Blistiens or something like that.
    Do I need to go to crossover steering or will the 60 just bolt up.
    I heard that If I'm going to run the truck in the snow, I should use ARB in the 60 instead of lockers so I can unlock it during the winter.
    4 1/8 backset on rims, 15" rims verses 16"(16 requires new tread).
    Does the 208 TC suck or will it hold up? Help is appreciated.

    14FF's have no c-clips. C-clips are a semi-floater. The FF's have the shafts bolted to the bearing hub, which protrudes out the center of the wheels.

    U-joints are a matter of mix & match. Without specific details about what you have currently on your rig, its hard to tell what can mate and cant. The front D60 should have the same size u-joint as the D44 and 10B. The rearend will have a bigger 1350 series yoke. If you plan on retaining your stock driveshaft, you need the hybrid u-joint to run the rearend.

    To relocate the rear shock mounts, simply cut them off and move them to the same location as the stock rig's axles. In other words, the 1 ton has mounts opposite of the 1/2 and 3/4 ton. So, if you want to run stock location mounts, follow the ones on the rear you are taking out. If you want more ground clearance, now is the time to move the lower mounts to wherever you would like.

    Crossover steering is best decided on the amount of lift you have. If you are running 4" or less, the stock set up would be more than adequate. My opinion, anything over 6" should have some steering modifications.

    You can run anything you want for a locker. Keep in mind of the price for the ARB. If you are on a budget build, you can get by with a Trac-Lock just fine. While it may not be a full locker, it will still be there and allow you to steering the rig.

    Your rim choice with that backspacing will work just fine.

    NP208 t-cases have a bad reputation because of the chain and the fact they use a slip yoke, which when the u-joint breaks and the shaft falls out, the fluid in the t-case is lost because it drains out. Dodge NP208's have a fixed yoke which, when located, can be swapped in and solve the drain problem. Personally, I like the 208's. They have that low range of 2.62 and are stronger than others think. Now if you were to build something for a little hardcore offroading, especially with those 1 ton axles, you should upgrade to an NP205 t-case. I dont think I need to say much about the 205 because it speaks for itself! [​IMG]
