78/79 Bronco and F150 Dana 44's have cast chunks and you should avoid them unless you plan to run the Ford radius arm suspension.

Check out late model Super Duty trucks. The Sterling 10.25/10.5 is comparable to the 14B without the low hanging diff. And there is no shortage of F-250/350 trucks around...

to me, the 14 bolt is superior because it has:
double shear pinion
stronger 2 piece carrier
easier gear setup
easy to install pinion guard (necessary for a LP housing that has a crush sleeve)

i don't have hard numbers, but i'd be surprised if it has any more clearance than a 14b that was shaved for a Barnes4wd cover.

i will agree that the 10.25 and 14b are comparable in price. but the 10.5 with its dick brakes, usually runs for a little more.

You guys are throwing out great ideas. I really appreciate it. My wife and I currently rent a house from a friend and are looking into buying a house soon. The Jeep will probably go on the back burner for a bit. But it gives me more time to research!

Hey KingtheZJ,

I checked out the rear bumper you built. That thing looks great. I'm looking to do one for mine soon. I'm a certified welder and michinist by trade. That thing looks really clean. Good job for a first timer!! If you get a chance I posted a front bumper build in the "Fabrication shop"
It's the thread #15 from the top! Check it out!!
