Pinch are pretty strong and you can also get a lot of after market accessories for them also.

yeah a 9" is a very strong axle. put in a strange or other good aftermarket third and some 35 spline shafts, shave the bottom and you have a very stout axle. hell if you got the coin get a truhi9.
alot of buggies with high hp v8's run them and they are doing fine

We've ran 9" in our comp buggys for several years now with no breakage (knock on wood) yet. Hell I'd guess 90% of comp rigs use a 9" in some shape or form. I can give you more specifics on what we run but if your just lookin for opinions..... Use the 14B for what it was intended for, Yacht mooring anchor. 9" all the way.

only downfall with the SWB of a jeep is the low pinion in the 9"

stretch the wheelbase like it needs to be and it shoudlnt be a problem. it's the same with a 14 bolt
