    I have been looking all over DFW area here in Texas and cant find anyone with a 14 bolt for less then $350.00 and most of the time the axles are no good or something is missing. I am still going to have to regear it . Can some one help me out? thanks

    4.56 in a 14bFF with a Detroit will run 42s without any problems.

    aight derf00 posted this a while back, and this is the guy i got my axles from and he's pretty good, plus see if his friend who drives an 18 wheeler can bring em up w/ him. thats how i got em.

    The following add appeared in our local thrifty nickel.
    ___________________________________________________________________________________
    "DANA60 front end. 14 bolt rea-end. Detroit locker 4.56 gears. $1600.00. (915)776-2854 or (915)-725-2736."

    The guys name is Kevin Stewart, I called and talked to him. He deals in CUCV's. This set of axles is off a '85 CUCV, and he apparently has more.
