This thing was just regeared according to the guy I bought it from.

But its all a moot point as your going with a ARB, just pointing it out so others can see.

Jason.
Its an open diff, Jason. Want it?

there is a guy in hot springs that sells shafts spindles and whatever else may go on a 14bolt. He buys them and cuts them up for hybrid axles. I can get the contact info if anyone needs it but I am sure these are common enough you can find local.

Naw, I am kind of spoiled with ARB's plus I'm already plumbed etc. I really wanted a front ARB again when I swapped the D60 in, but didn't have the coin, so I went Detroit.

Bang for your buck, 14FF wins every time. a little lip shave can give you over an inch of ground clearance under it.

mine is all stock internals and i openly beat on it with 38.5's and the worry of breaking a shaft never crosses my mind.

nothing wrong with the d70 or sterling axles, but the 14 is tried and true.

Anybody want a bling aluminum cover? Oh yea, almost forgot....it came from a mid 90's Chevy 3500.





Looks great Joe

You're moving up to 39" stickys already?? You havent even wheeled your 37s yet have you?

Thanks Chris. I had my YJ on 37's stickys out on a couple of stealth runs. Nothing too tough, mostly scenic with a couple obstacles thrown in.

Wanna take a wild guess at who wants my polished 8.8?

Yep. If things go as he wishes, the 8.8 I helped him truss will get sold to somebody else which helps him fund my 8.8 which is better suited for what he really wants. Plus, he'll get spare Super 88 shafts and a new RuffStuff 8.8 truss too if he wants to buy it too.
