Hmm...sounds like it has less clearance than a shaved stock 14 bolt housing?

By half a inch by the sounds of it, assuming that's to still allow clearance for an unshaved ring gear which makes sense.

It's the 100pound weight reduction that's rather appealing to me.

Cheers,

Doesn't that pretty much defeat the purpose of a 14b? Most guys pick up the 14b because they can be found for $100 and cheap to build. If your going to buy all that you could put the same money into a 9" and have the option of 40spline shafts down the road instead of being stuck with the 1.5" 30spline 14b shafts.

It wouldn't if you require the additional R&P strength in a lighter package. Also AFAIK the 30 spline 14 bolts dia sits in between the Dana 60 based 35 and 40 spline axles dia, I'd assume it to be a pretty fair effort twisting one.

Cheers,
B

Also on the 9", from what little I know, there are some strgenth limitatations there going that large. Then bring high pinion into the game and only really one option now.

This is still an interesting option when you don't want to run full width. You could still start with a 100 donor 14 bolt, then put the guts into this, shorter shafts, brakes... Have not done all the math, but is still compelling to me. So is the spider 9 and true hi9 as well. If this or the 60 dropout version come to the table that just gives us more options.

So it's a 3rd member 14B?

I still rather pick up a $200 14B off the junker.

Nearly an inch if you run a shaved ring gear...

100pound weight reduction based on what configuration?
- By the time you've done a disc brake conversion and a set of ali hubs on a stock 14b then you've already pulled off a ton of weight.

I can see the appeal of a high pinion though...

We're going to run on on a buggy in the shop. I think they're badass and a great idea. Its a silly strong axle with less weight which is important to us. I have some pictures of them if i can dig them up. If I'm not mistaken a third is going to cost roughly 1700 but DO NOT hold me to that. Matt hasn't set the pricing on them yet because all the costs haven't been calculated.

man if i ever run a 14-bolt it will be off a junker. No way I'm spending that much money just for a custom housing.

Matt at solid is a good dude. But I also would rather do a 75 dollar junkyard axle.
