    From what I've heard the 14blt gives you more ground clearance than the 60. But can't speak from personal experience!

    The Eaton *does* have a removable pinion support, like the 14 bolt.

    The dana 60 doesnt...and it has more clearance than a 14 bolt, as well as being lighter...but the 14 bolt is stronger in every conceivable way.
