Bombproof 14 bolt pinion guard

Which manufacturer makes the most bombproof 14 bolt pinion guard. I've bent them up to 3/8" and finally plated the one I have. 1/4" wouldn't get me off the trailer. This is for another build. Might as well start with the best.

Thoughts?

I think my diy4x is 1/2" on the guard part. Kert made me one with a flange on top so I could tie it into my truss too.

I copied one spidr made way back.
Its a touch ghetto and currently doesn't leave room to get at ubolt yokes..
But it's tough as all hell and was easy to put together

I have seen the ruffstuff ones that have been plated further and braced a bit more take some SERIOUS beatings and be fine.

That being said...I am more interested in this "other build" you have going on more than what fawking pinion guard you are going to use

post that shit!

The one I had was the main reason we didn't finish KOH14.

I think it was a Blue Torch one. Bent up and broke the 1410 yoke. More driver than part, and it had been on there for 10+ years. I cut it off and built a new one with a sharper angle on the bottom using AR plate. 2 pcs of 3/16" AR400 laminated and braced. it amazing how much they will bend up.

I like and use the GLO guard the best. Use them on 2 different 14B's without problems.

Ford 9" & 14 Bolt Yoke Guard

That DIY4x4 one does look like some beef though!

Quick dumb question. If you run the 14 bolt upside down, is the pattern consistent where you can mount it upside down?

I like my Ruff Stuff guard. Some other manufacturers hang below the housing and I didn't like that. I have a Ballistic 14 bolt pinion guard I can sell ya for cheap

This is the beefiest one I've seen yet. I dig how it's notched to fit over a 1410 yoke. And comes with hardware. Can you post a picture of your installed?

The ruffstuff one clears a 1410 yoke just fine. No mods needed.

Yes. NO they will not. 2 holes will have to be slotted out 1/8"

I think the bolt pattern is not symmetrical. I had pinion guard made here locally, bolt pattern copied from the axle, but it was welded "upside down" and could be bolted up only that way. The pattern looks symmetrical, but I m 99% sure it isn't. To use it i would have to cut the guard off form the flange and weld it in different postion. It was 1986 cucv 14B ff axle.

flanges, then you dont need to deal with straps or ubolt failures.

I r retarded. K5-EINARI is correct. I only had 2 bolts in mine at the time.
4/6 will line up no problem. The other two i had to slot out 1/8" across from each other on the sides.

Made one. Few hours at a buddies shop, cut, bent, blasted and punched out of 1/2" plate and eventually powder coated. Artec on the right.
