Theres a bigger and much cheaper aftermarket life for the 14 bolt. You wont find much for a sterling 10.25 or 10.5. You'll also snap a pinion or shear the spiders on the sterling before you hurt the 14 bolt in any way. I've run the sterlings, in fact I still run them, but I will always choose the 14 bolt over them. I have both though.
What is the smallest rim I can fit on a 2006 superduty rear? I can't use a pinion brake so I have to leave the brakes on it. I have a 14 bolt that is buried in the snow so I can't measure it. Will it fit without any modifications? It will fit a 15" rim. Correct?
The 14 bolt came out of a square body. I guess I will have to dig it out and get some measurements. I also need a box. It's a 6'6". Is there any others that fit reasonably well or should I look for another superduty?
