Just checking in to say that it is good to see this thread still going strong. If I ever disable myself and cannot work I will volunteer to write the Super 60 bible.

Sure, so long as one of you does not come after my knees to get it done. Thought about that after. :flipoff2:
Dammit, cancelling my flight. :flipoff2:

40 spline big bell RCV's installed in a 14 bolt center with 05+ f250/f350 super duty 60 outers.

Nutless ball joint eliminators, clearanced lower ball joint studs, then ground the inner lip on the knuckles to fit them through.

Thinking the inner boot may be difficult to get apart if we need to pull the shafts, but it also has a 3/4" threaded hole on the end we can use a slide hammer or something and use the inside of the knuckle to hold the boot, aiding in pulling them back apart.

Same axle I run.
Removing the bells is actually pretty easy if you wedge a couple zip ties between the bell and the boot.

Soo how good are the '05+ stock lockouts? Prioritizing upgrades, planning to do 1550 shafts and keep the 1480 as spares. Not sure drive flanges are in this years budget....or would that be a better investment with stock shafts?

I've h ad pretty good luck with them in my jeep. Grizzly locker, rcvs, 4ds, lq9, 4 spd atlas, 5500+lb rig. Wheeling from Pennsylvania to Utah to Ontario. I get just over a season out of them. I've broke 3 in 3 years. 1 broke and I lost function from it. The last two I didn't know broke until I removed them go service bent ball joints, they still functioned.

Instead of the regular axle seals, or in addition?
They are for sale several places online, it looks like $110-$120, some places listed as $65 (per side, maybe?).

This is the image I found - I do not know if that helps anyone visualize how it fits. They are referring to it as a "splash shield".
