not rushin into that..........i'm snaggin the axle out of convenience and cost. for a rainy day future project.Sounds like it’s just in time for some 14b action!
i try not to bitch about bad knees a torn bicep and a bad back ,. my brain says i could do it......but my body may pitch a fit 1/2 way down.I know what you mean. I had to use both hands to get mine out of the truck…
You do some first class dicking around. I like it.finally got around to ordering the filler neck cap/spout. went with an Eddie's aluminum flush mount with a bright red cap. this will mount on the small panel behind the seat on the back of B bar.
should be able to mount those front fenders this wkend.
i dicked around with a spare tire mount that would connect off the harness rail and bolt to old seat bracket holes in the rear floor. kinda light duty but not finished yet, we'll see.

If memory serves the stock 14 bolt is 30 spline, right? Don’t get hung up on the spline count, the 30 spline 14b shaft is a larger diameter than the 35 spine 60 shaft. It’ just a different spline configuration. 40 spline shafts would be cool - I thought about it when I built mine - but it would have been a lot of work and expense, and it seemed liked overkill even for me.
And for me, doing the shave was a fun project. And a full shave does get you a full 2”.
Everything about the beast is heavy, no getting around that.
Well, stock size shafts but chromo. I do have buddies running 42’s and 43’s with high HP on stock 14b shafts, and no breakage that I know of yet. And they are certainly not light foots. The good news is that a broken shaft on a 14b is usually a 5 minute job.Well we all know you are going to put those shafts to the test when you get your 42" tires so we'll see just how well stock shafts hold up.
