GM 14 Bolt Prototype
« on: April 14, 2015, 06:32:03 PM »
Looking for volunteers to test our GM 14 bolt prototypes.

If you're welded, let me know. Our design (and our competitors) re-use the stock axle gear. I can supply new ones. We re-use the cross pin as well.

Let me know, fresh form heat treat. Would like the lockers to see some street time as well.

10.5" or 9.5"?

(when I had my Yukon with 14 bolt swap years ago, I couldnt find any decent lockers for it at the 9.5" version)

I think all three u4 cars are running full spools now, not sure what other rigs are running 14s. Gif and Jeff maybe? I think all the tow rigs are AAM 11.5s not 10.5" 14 bolts too.

I have a 14 bolt in my 2500 I could donate use for. It's mostly street driven, but I do enough driving it through the field for work on the farm that it may work well enough for testing.

I've got one, welded. I can try to get a little street time on it, but it will be minimal haha

Gif and I are both running full-floater 14 bolt welded rears.  Gif is running 14-bolt in Duramax also.  (9.5" are considered semi-floaters and not the same animal)

Oh, I figured Gif's tow rig was AAM 11.5 same as my 3500 Dodge.

After some discussion with our engineer, I think we will test offroad applications first.
I'll call Jeff.
Harry, PM me your address if you are interested. I can send you a new cross pin and thrust washers if you need them, let me know.
