    Hey everyone new here. I was wondering under what vehicles would I find a 14 Bolt semi floating axle with 6 lugs? Also what gearing came in these axles? Thanks everyone

    your refering to a 10.5" 14 bolt full floater.

    this axle only came in eight lug.

    you can find them in one ton pickups and dumps, and some 3/4 ton suburbans

    oops, sorry i read the post wrong.

    that axle is a 9.5" 14 bolt.

    mostly eight lug, though i have seen them in six lug in some 88 to 96 or so 3/4 ton pickups, with the lighter gvwr.

    and welcome to plowsite!:waving:

    I think all 3/4 tons were 8 bolt,LD's getting the semi-floating rear,and HD and one tons got the full floater.

    I think it was only the heavy half tons that came with a six bolt pattern,but you couldn't get the 14 bolt in a half ton.

    You might have to switch 8 bolt wheels to run a 14 bolt rear.It's simple to convert the front diff to 8 bolt.

    I spent quite a bit of time looking at that swap for my K10. They came in some extended cab 1/2 tons (not sure what the option was), and light duty 3/4 tons. Most common are 3.73 rear end ratios, but 4.10 and 3.42 are around also.
