I am brand new to the site, and right off the bat, I have an oddball question....has anybody ever used a Corp GM 14-bolt truck axle from a military CUCV M1008 (or similar) pickup to swap into their A-body?

These are pretty reasonable to find, all have detroit lockers, and I bet they can be cut down to fit....

I can't even begin to imagine how heavy that would be over a Dana 60, and they are pretty heavy. Course, use what you got!

Wow - those all have lockers? I figured it was a regular old blazer 10 or 12 bolt. That's cool! That could be the only part of a CUCV I never broke LOL

The M1008 pickups were all K30 one-tons, with Dana 60 front diffs and Corporate 14-bolt (Dana clones) rears with Detroit Lockers in every single one.
The M1009 Blazer CUCV's were all K5-style Blazers with 10-bolt rears, with those wimpy Gov-Lok posi setups....actually, the one in my Blazer never broke, but I didn't use it for much else than landscaping; and the M1008 was my all-purpose snowplow/utility truck in my landscape business.

The rears can be had for cheap, with the lockers, which was why I brought up this weird idea.... **(*)
