Re: 14 bolt w/37\"\'s and other GM full width questi

My 14B doesn't have Fins on it either.....

You can see the pic of the bottom of the 14b here
http://jeep.impulsepcrepair.com/14bolt/bottom/

And I did 1 pic with a red overlay of what will be shaved off the bottom and part of the sides....

(Sorry pic is from under it not over.. it was dark and cold and I didn't want to rotate the axle on the stands)

The finned one I use is a "Cab & Chassis" axle out of a huge tow truck, it has a higher weight rating but I'm not sure what it is.

Re: 14 bolt w/37\"\'s and other GM full width questi

Ok, so it's really not that big of a deal I don't have the fins on mind.. just less to shave [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Is the weight rating that important when considering the 14b is HUGE on a JEEP in respect to the weight of the original vehicles it came off of??

I have no fear of breaking a 14b with only 36s/38s and my stock 4.0 .. should I be worried ? (spooled/locked)

In a jeep the weight rating is a non-issue, any FF 14 bolt is strong.
I just happened across this one and grabbed it.

Hey Patrick,
What do you have in the front of your jeep now? I thought you had a Dana 44?

TeeJay, I still am actually running the Dana30 with 44 knuckles to get the hi-steer. I carry an extra set of axles with me, but haven't had to use them yet [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]. I am usually pretty easy on the skinny pedal, and try to pick better lines than just thrashing til I make it. On a recent trip, two Jeeps with Dana 44's each blew a joint on the same side on the same obstacle, when I went thru the planets must have been in alignment, since I didn't break, go figure. I am sure my magical 30 will dump eventually so I figured I'll swap out axles and go wider/stronger as I stretch the wheelbase.

Where did you go around here that people had that much breakage? Have you been to Moon or Funny Rocks?

Im thinking of either a 44 for my CJ or getting a strengthened 30 from someone that is going bigger. We just bought a house that we close on Dec27th, so expensive projects are on the halt for now.
