Yukon Gear Install in a 14 Bolt

GARD Pro Not Registered

Recently, when it came time for me to install my new 14-bolt ARB Air Locker, I was horrified to find that my gears were in atrocious condition. So much for maintenance…gulp! I guess 27 years of hard use – the last 7 or so under brutal conditions in the rear of my rock buggy take their toll on a set of gears!

14 Bolt ARB Air locker install

Until recently, there was one fairly major drawback to the 14-bolt: locker selection was far poorer than for other axles. Not so long ago it used to be that you had open carriers, a few weak/unreliable limited-slips, Detroit Lockers, or a home-made welded-up spool.

14 Bolt 1410 Yoke and U-bolt Kit

Everyone knows by now what a fan I am of the mighty GM 10.5″ ring gear 14-bolt axle. It’s an especially good choice for the budget builder because it’s so stout in stock form. That is…except for one really weak Achilles heel. In stock form, most, if not all 14 bolt pinion yokes use “straps and bolts” to retain the driveshaft U-joint.
