I wanna ditch the 12 bolt under my truck for something heavier duty. This is gonna be down the road a bit, but I want some feedback as to what could be best. My first choice is to get a 14 bolt semi-floater.. either a 6 lug, or an 8 lug to convert to a 6. This would probably be one of the easier conversions, since I can use my current rims and tires untill I go to 35s. However, 14 bolt s/fs are kinda hard to find where I live. Also, an 8 lug may cost a bit to convert.. but it has the neccesary mounts to bolt right under my truck. Or, I could go for a 14 bolt full floater. I would probably never break the thing on the trails I've been on. However, I would have to get 8 lug rims (not that expensive.. but I'd have to order them and remount my tires)and convert my 10 bolt front to 8 lug. It would involve a bit of work, but I'm sure I couldn't break the thing. Third is the possibility of getting a Dana 60. BigGray71 may get a spare, and sell it to me. I could convert it to a 6 lug, 35 spline s/f axel.. it would be pretty much bulletproof.. however the conversion may be costly with new axle shafts and a new driveshaft necessary. Finally, I could get a full floater kit for the 12. Since I'm only going up to 35" tires w/ a 4" lift, I don't need a super strong diff capable of having 44" swampers on it. The only problem I have with the FF kit is that it's $700. It's extremely costly for just an axel upgrade. I could use some advice. However, in the case of the 14 bolts, I have to go looking in junkyards. The Dana isn't a definate deal, and I could order the 12 bolt FF kit from Warn. I just want something that will last me a long time, I can slap a full case locker in, and not have to worry about things like big tires, mud,rocks,and daily road use breaking it. Gimme some suggestions. http://billybob.coloradok5.com It's all fun 'n games, till someone gets stuck.
