Idk but he kept the engine and the new buggy runs Dana 80s. I believe his previous one, showtime, ran steering 14bolts and he went to the 80s for weight reasons.

Probably sent from under my broken heep

Other than the front pinion on the 14 bolt being worlds stronger than the 70 and 10.25, I would have allways put them in the same boat.
You really cant go wrong with any of them with a 39" tire, start getting around a 42" then I would say the 14 bolt will step forward as the 70 "could" start snapping front pinions off, they are they same 29 spline pinion as a 60.
Just thought I would add the dana 70hd has a larger pinion shaft and cannot be interchanged between the other dana 70 axles. They also have 3 different carrier offsets and gear ratios are very limited if you choose the wrong dana70.
The 14 bolt is the best decision by far very strong and parts are everywhere.
They do make a beast thats even stronger but are very big and heavy. The Dana 80

Hd's due have a larger REAR bearing but still taper down to same 29 spline dana 60 input size yoke. If anything I was hoping the HP 70 top kick trucks gear would of had the bigger pinion but they still taper back down to the smaller size yoke.
Even the super 60 10" gears made buy Ford use the same weak spot. The only thing that is a upgrade is one after market company ( forgot who it is ) make a custom 35 spline input and a 10" size ring, but only in 5.38 and HP.

Already?! A new video of it was posted on showtime hill like last week. Wow.

The wheelbase on that one was too short and it was a bit too light I think. It didn't climb near as well as showtime

Thanks for the info guys, if nothing goes wrong between now and in the morning I will come home with this instead. It was cheap enough to override the other deal.

What years came with factory disks and those ribs? Are the internals swapable with older 14 bolts? What needs to be done to the factory braking system to work with the 1ton brakes? I'm running an hpd60/14 bolt set up and my brakes suck! I dont know it theyre factory brakes or aftermarket but theyre disks all the way around.
