    I currently drive a 1987 k10 with 10 bolts and stock gears, 4 inch lift, 35 at's and a wimpy 305 TBI... i have been blessed with a set of 14 bolts traded for a extra stepside bed i have, along with these i am sliding a np205 onto the back of a new th400 which i recently installed. i will be definetly doing a motor upgrade to at least a 350, if not working on a 454. Please give all tips and things to watch for and do in my travels of making this redneck mobile possible /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    What does it mean when you say a set of 14 bolts? 14 bolts were only made for the rear.

    I talked to a mechanic and he has what he said a set of 14 bolt axles, and when i asked whats the front axle, he said 14 bolt, im not big on axles so i have no clue. i am trading a stepside bed for the axles and also a np205 transfer case
