    ConFerr makes ones for up to 2.75" diameter axle tubes.

    Does anyone know a source for the 14Bolt (3.375 - 3.500"?)

    I can probably make them myself, but TIME is hard to find these days! /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    I searched and couldn't find any. I ended up making some out of 2 1/2 inch square steel tubing that is 1/4 of and inch thick. I think they are much stronger than anything you could buy.

    Missouri Offroad Outfitters makes them for the 14 bolt for a good price. Check out www.mo-offroad.com

    I'm looking for the "weld-on" part.....

    I checked the MOO site and didn't see anything there either....maybe I'm not looking in the right place?

    I picked up a set from Summit, for about 13 bucks, they said they were for 3" dia. tube. When I got them they almost fit perfect, so I just hit them real quick with a grinder just to make them fit perfect. I had no problems and would do it again. Here is a pic off Summit's web site. <a target="_blank" href=http://store.summitracing.com/global/images/prod/large/DCC-4120074.jpg>http://store.summitracing.com/global/images/prod/large/DCC-4120074.jpg</a>

    Sorry guys, I guess Steve doesnt have them listed. I will have him get back to you both. I will say, they are pretty beefy. I didnt buy a set, I saw a set he made for a guys Van 14 bolt housing. Looked good.

    Update - just called him. $40 for the set.

    I have them for sale. They are made out of mild steel, and are solid. I have them drilled for standard and also drilled to relocate the axle back 1 inch. I can drill them 1.5" back on request. They are cut for 3.3750" alxe tube. All you have to do is set your pinion angle and weld them on. They will set your spring 1 inch above the axle, so they give a little lift as well. I am asking $ 40.00 a set plus shipping. If anybody is interested I will post some pics just as soon as I can figure out how to do it. Or I can email some pics to you.
