What's up?????

Years ago when I started in the "Addicition" everyone was searching for that elusive 60/14 combo and that was the "ideal set-up" and even not too long ago. For some reason when I log on this great site it seems people can't sell them fast enough and seems we all are looking for something better.

Maybe I just notice it more now that I have rockwells or maybe it's just what people realize now.

I enjoyed my 60/14 and never had a problem with them. I wish all of you with them great fun and luck. To the one's who have/ are looking for rockwells, I enjoy them very much as well and hope you have the same success.

I love mine and they ain't for sale...I spent 4+ years looking for and wanting a 60, finally got one, and I'll prolly be buried with it..

As far as looking for something better, we all like building stuff so we upgrade axles, gears...etc.. Always wanting to try something new..I like rockwells, I just think they are too heavy for what I want.

I started the "addiction" when i was 16. I was barreling down the road in my '70 plymouth roadrunner seeing all the people cutting out in the woods and having alot of fun. I then bought an '81 F-150 (kept the roadrunner) and starting building it up. I started out with a Twin I-beam front and then succesfully did my first solid axle D44 swap. I was proud i did it completely on my own, but the D44 didnt last too long. then i heard of the desired D60. I sold the ford and went chevrolet And went through a few of them before I paid $1500 for a m1008 to rob the running gear for my first blazer. I didnt even put em under it yet when i found out about rockwells. I had seen them in alto alot but never thought much about em. So i traded em for the rocks i have now and havent looked back. To me i dont want to put a bunch of cash in one tons just to be as strong as stock rockwells

I guess I kinda did things a little different. I went from a dana 30 and 35 in a jeep to Rockwells. I built a ton of 44's and 60's for friends, but never had a set of my own. I love my rocks though! I guess cause of the fact that I have to have rear steer...lol!

Rocks arent that much heavier than D60.

For a trail rig I just dont see the piont in building a D60 and 14BFF. By the time you spend the money for gears and lockers you can buy a set of rocks and that is not couting installing the gears. When I had my '01 dodge ram 1500 I put a D60 and 14BFF under them and I got a hell of a deal on the front axle and rear. I put 5:13 gears in them and just had them both open and had over $1500 in them. And that is cheap for disk braked 14BFF, geared, and buying both axles.

I got tired of breaking my measley D35 shafts and decidec after the next break I would just go straight up with D60's. I don't think that I thrash the beast enough to warrant rocks and besides, with all the hype I still wanted to run it on the road as a semi daily driver which means the rocks are out in my book ( maybe no others but for me they are not what I was looking for ).If and when I decide to have a complete offroad terror then the rocks may come into play but for now...lets just say.. I like the looks I get from the strange even if momma don't know.
Yeah yeah, I'm an old bastid and that don't account for much but it feels good to drive the streets and have people marvel at your rig! Mine was purpose-built for play and running the streets, D60's front and rear can't be beat ( 14 bolts have too much hang-down) and I have yet to demolish anything other than years old bushings in my link arms.
I won't bore anyone with cost...it costs money to have the rig ya want..period. One man cane do a one ton prject for 2 grand or less and another may take over 5 g's to get what he wants. Its all in what wheeler wants...and I want to wheel and NOT break! ANd thats why I changed from a D30/D35 combo to straight up D60's skipping the D44/ ford 9" step.
