    People seem to always say you should get that kit but I swore it was discontinued, is there some place you guys know to get it that I don't?

    Not knocking 1/2 ton axles, but why put all that money in a 12 bolt when a 14 Bolt FF can be had so cheap ???

    There are reasons to run 1/2 tons. You have probably read my other posts, and I am going to run them for weight savings, and clearence issues. Clearence is a presious comodity on the AZ rocks, and 1/2 has alot more then 1 tonners.

    I'm not actually interested in 1/2 tons, I am going 14 bolt I am just asking because people seem to say this often enough that I think they need to relize its not a possibility anymore. Or I need to find out where you get them.

    I believe they did discontinue them, but if you look around you can still find kits from before they got discontinued that are still sitting on someones shelves.
