    Pull the 14 bolt and if its a FF then keep it for yourself if its a SF then sell it to fund something else for your rig or trade it for something for your rig. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]FF = Full Floating. SF = Simi Floating. Th FF is stronger. The FF will have a center hub with 8 bolts.

    your rear wheel bolts to the hub then there would be another set of 8 bolts in the middle of those in a smaller circle.

    I'm no expert, but it sounds like you have a SF, but you could probably use the P/S box for crossover steering later. It's a good thing to hang on to, doesn't take up too much space.

    I think the sub doors will fit your jimmy depending on the year of the suburban, keep them for future half doors if you think that may be in the plans. If your Jimmy doesn't have a tilt column and the sub does, that might be of use. Windsheild might be worth keeping for a spare if its in good shape....hmm. Tell you what, just send the suburban to Colorado and I'll take all those pesky extra parts off your hands!
