I almost picked up a king pin HP60 and 14b last week but then I got to thinking I have wheeled my HP30/8.8 locked pretty hard and no issues, knock on wood. I have only gotten stuck once and my buddies YJ on 38.5s got stuck in the same spot in a rock pile. Just my 2 cents but with how much clearance you still get with smaller axles and decently big tires, I think I am happy with 36s right now

If the price is right it may be a good idea to grab that HP60 and 14B just to hold on to. Those axles are getting harder and harder to find, well the HP 60 is as least. Full Floating 14 Bolts are still cheap and easy to find around here.

Anyway. Buy them, get them all cleaned up and put them away for safe storage or possibly get them ready to sell in the future.

Just a couple years ago you could find a left hand drive, HP 60 pretty easy and the price was about $350. Now they are getting a bit more difficult to locate and the price is $500 if you get a good deal.

FF 14's are worth about $200 here.

Not really man. Just a little burned out with it, I just need to wheel it. Got the slider boxes on and it drives good. Only thing it really needs is a good alignment and for me to fill two holes in the floor from where I removed two supports for my sliders when I did my 3 link. Still needs gears, though I'm not so worried about it at the moment. By next summer I would like to get a cage in and maybe do some competitive rock crawling at RC. It's been on my mind, just haven't pursued it yet.
