The front dana 60 I have already has 4.56's in it. The 14ff I picked up this weekend has 3.73's (I think). Want to go 5.38's or 5.72's but 14ff doesn't allow that. Is it worth the extra money to change both axles to 5.13's or just change the 14 ff to 4.56 and save the money? Is there a noticable differance between 4.56 and 5.13's to make it worth the money? (I'm running 44's)

no on the noticable change, only the transfer case will feel the difference if you leave 1 at 456 and 1 at 513, save the cash, use 456s

I have 456 in mine and I`m changing to 513 as quick as I can. I also got a 1350 pinion yoke to put in while the swap is going on. The dana 60 has a 1310 stock. Did you do the 35 spline outers yet?

When I got the dana 60 I went through it and changed the outers to 35 with new warn hubs. I'm looking to put my cross over in but need to build a drag link for it. I have the high steer set up to raise the tie rod over the leafs. I need to find someone nearby to weld in my frame brace kit for me on the steering box since I haven't p/u a welder yet.

I believe they are Yukon gears and yes they are thick. I'm pretty sure they are out of stock right now, the last I heard anyway. Give Randy's a call tomorrow.8)

I have a welder in Baytown at my house, if you want to use it or to learn how, if you already don't know how. I need to weld in my ORD braces also!
