Ok guys, I did look for information before I started this post.
I'm looking for the wide 14B Van axle, what isn't "clear" is what Van it is and what years.
The 3500 Express 00+ seems to have a D70 or some AAM non 14Bolt in it.

I copied this from another post on here, but what's missing is year and type, G, Cutaway, Cube, Express, Savannah..?

~67" is early 14b 73'-87'/91'
~65" is 14b from 88'/92'-00'
~69' is newer 14b w/disc 01'-current
Most all the vans are about 70"-71"

I'm looking for a Disk 14 bolt that I don't have to put spacers on or at least those many to get my track "good" with a M-715 with an 07' F350 Ford.

The problem is I want to run H1 rims, and no the cost of trail worthy re-enter setup isn't a good solution for me, as well I like to be able to run the take offs till I die.

The SD front has UB redrill and brake options for the H1 pattern.

Thanks, and yes I belong to the M-715 and all the FB M-715 pages.

The wise van 14b were older 1t/g30 till the early 90's.

Ive never heard of nor seen a van 14bff with discs.

The older + ruffatuff disc brake kit is probably going to be your solution

The 3500 Express/ Savanah 2000's + have apparently had a 14B.
It seems to be right next to Lore.
I do know they are around 70-72 WMS and might be D70 or AAM

#1 only gm used 14bff. So dodge and ford are off the table.

#2 the gm van with a 14bff is only going to be found in 1t/g30 passenger style fullsize vans. Not astro vans, not p30, not step vans, not motor homes, not busses.

#3 the 14bff was introduced in 1973 and stopped around 2003 with the aam axles.

#4 the g30 fullsize van youre looking for was built after aug 1972 and before aug 1991/2

That's rather good information, that I was missing!

No perfect world, looks like if I want a wide 14bolt it has to be done without drums or installing a disk conversion.

Or a P/U 14B with 4" spacers.

Any "feelings" on the Sterling over the 14?

I appreciate your information!

A d70hd dually is 72"


No reason not to use a sterling 10.25 unless you have stock pilot bore wheels. Gm is the smallest fords are the biggest.

Sterling 10.5 are 8x170mm but theres ways around that aswell.

Ford e350 have a d60 disc break but are 32 spline. But 35 are swap side gears and install shafts and 8x6.5 not 8x170

I want to run H1 rims, I have a 2007 F350 D60 that I'm putting in up front.
I can use an adapter, redrilled UBs on the D60.

The Sterling, 05+ and 14B are virtually the same width, since I have to use spacers on both those axles it wouldn't matter to use a Sterling 10.5 with an adapter that's 4" ish .

I would rather not use spacers, I believe the DRW Sterling is about 72" WMS but a little worried about how far the hub would stick out.

That's why I was looking for the VAN axle, it's a SRW that's around 70-72"wms.

Right now I have a free 14bolt from a 06' , it's free because the guy on Ebay I got it from misrepresented it, looks like it was pulled from the Titanic.

Id just go after that sterling and get the 12/24b h1 recentered and skip the spacers
Almost 2G more over the regular set of H1 rims from Trail Worthy, 5 rims and tires.

The idea of aluminum "pucks" isn't something I'm taking lightly, rather not.

But if I ever have to replace/ repair something far from home, I'm SOL.
Same thing with a custom length axle, for the price of five 24 bolt re-entered rims, I'm at a custom built WMS 14bolt without brakes.

It's really a question of money 💰...
