Did some research on the axles I picked up today and the 14b has the factory Detroit locker in it (its basically a lunch box locker). They must have come out of a CUCV. Anyone know anything about the locker that came in the rear and if it's worth it to keep in there?

These are def not "open diffs" as described on the Rausch forum thread.

Rear 14b carrier has spring inside the window (no spider gears). Debating whether to keep the Detroit or find spider gears to put in and weld.

Front d60 looks like a trac-loc (clutch packs on either side of the spiders) and apparently are rare. Gonna have to research whether the gears can still be welded or not. I would assume they can. May want to re-sell these axles and start over as they look to be worth a fair amount of money.

14b Detroit s good, but probably not what you want for racing/thrashing. They don't ride on cross pins like a Dana lunchbox locker and are pretty strong.  14b spiders should be able to be found on pirate cheap.

D60 track lock can be welded I think. I have a 35 spline open carrier if you want to swap it out.

Cucv axles go for 1K-1500 on PBB. Hard to get more when the whole trucks go for 2k
