I just wanna know if anyone has done it with any success.
I was wondering the same thing. I was thinking about welding a 12 bolt kinda like the tech write up on the home page for the 14ff. Just planed on leaving it like that for the summer when I will be offroading more and then switching back to an open diff. when the summer is over or if i like it enough just keeping it. Id just be running some 33s.
When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.
Yes, you can also weld a 10 bolt and Dana 44 too.... The main difference is that you can not take the carrier apart like the 14 bolt. The 14 bolt allows you to individually weld up the side gears then reinstall them, then reinstall the whole carrier.

Dana 60, Corp 14 - 4.88'd - Detroit Locked
How do you go about it then?
Basically you'd have to weld it up installed in the housing...

Yeah, you can weld any axel up. We've welded S10 axels before, on the weird s-10 blazer "Swamp buggy" creation.
My 12 bolt is welded it up. I ran two trailrides/rockcrawls with this and it has held just fine with 35x15.50 TSL's.....

weld the spiders to the carriers if you have some extra carriers laying around in case you want to switch it back. Clean ALL of the oil out of the diff first so You don't have a flash fire. Takes about 10 Mins to weld it up.
Like to go sloppin' 'round in da mud in a rapid fashion....=)
