    any online sourses or anyone selling one? i don't want to get a pre 88 one and convert it either. i want to be able to bolt the bad boy in and find matching R&P- 3.42. i just laughed at the guy on the phone when i called the local junk yard and he said they wanted 750 plus exchange for one. what a joke! this will be going in my 92 1/2 ton burb.

    $750.00....
    get a 14FF and do the Echobit 8 to 6 lug...
    14FF= $100.00 to $200.00
    8 to 6 lug= $185.00
    hub and axle rework for the 8 to 6 lug=$125.00
    total= $460.00

    Thats not a bad price for a 6-lug SF 14 from a junkyard. I would check on the price/ availability of 6-lug axleshafts, then buy an 8-lug axle, stick the 6-lug shafts in it, and put disks on it. Make sure the axle is from a 4x4 and not a 2x4, as the 2WD axle is a couple of inches narrower.

    if you were close I would sell you an 8 lug semi float dirt cheap with 3.42s. Oh well you can probably find one cheaper than me shipping cross country.

    Are there any pick-n-pull type yards in Oregon? The ones around here sell rear ends for $125. You have to find it and pull it yourself, but is sure saves ya some bucks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Even if you have to drive to another city, it would still be a lot cheaper than spending $750! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Look in 2wd BBC trucks... My buddy with a 88 C20 Burb (454) has the 14bFF w/3.42

    I don't think that ratio became available for the 14bFF until the mid 80's. It replaced the 3.21 ratio AKAIK.
