locker for 14 bolt???

I have an '83 K1500 with a 14 bolt and D60 out of a one ton truck. Im running a 350-400 hp small block with 35" tires. What locker's or limited slips should I look at that are somewhat affordable? The cheaper the better, but I dont want to run a spool or weld spider gears. Its my DD, just something for occasional off roading, nothing very extreme.
What do you guys think? Could I get away with just a lock right? I have never dealt with a bigger, stronger axle like a 14 bolt.. My experience is limited to jeeps with dana 35's and a couple of toyota rear ends. Thanks for the advice guys!!!

Make sure it doesn't have a gov loc diff. first. I would run a detroit if it were me.

oh, right, because it would take about a 100 rpm difference between the two axles to lock it up, right? I guess pulling the cover is the only option to find out. Thanks guys! If not, I guess i'll just drop the $700 for a detroit locker.

Being a realatively mild driver, running occasional trails, What are my chances of breaking the gov loc(if so equiped) running 35's, 350-400hp small block with a manual tranny?

Very impressed with the Grizzly locker. A bit cheaper as well

You should probably proof read what you type...

Anyways, If you had a gov-loc you'd probably know it, by the SPIN-BANG/CLACK-LOCK routine that they do.


And. if you have an open rearend in your 14bolt, a detroit is only $350-400, as it is a drop in style locker.

Of course had you done ANY research into what you actually HAVE, or as to what is AVAILIBLE for what you have then you'd know this.

I did do some research but thanks for being rude and sarcastic!
That price is what I got when I pluged in my axle on the 4wheelParts website. Im not partial to them at all but I was ordering some other stuff and plugged it in to get a price. And what, may I ask, was so wrong with what I typed that it needed to be proof read?

This is what I had come up with:
http://www.4wheelparts.com/productli...9.5in.+14+Bolt

It comes up as $671, I think. Maybe its the wrong application.

Randy's has the Grizzly locker for $389. That seems like a good enough deal. Thanks to those who helped!

just by seeing that link i saw "9.5 in" and know that you obviously do not know what you are talking about, yet. i would go do some reading before you start asking any more questions and learn some stuff. people are only rude because spoonfeeding newbies makes baby jesus cry.

x2 9.5" = semi-float 3/4 ton.

he never said if it was a full float or semi float, just that it was a 1 ton 14bolt and based upon his questions he may be mistaken about that. I think he needs to pull the shafts, carrier, and the ring gear off just to measure the ring gear, might save him a little bit of coin
