Default corporate 14b or dana 60

I have the optin to get a corporate 14b with 4:10's and open on trade for a t-case, I plan on puting 5:38 and a spool/welded in for my rock buggy. I wanted to have a dana 60 rear to match the front but is there any down fall to the 14b over the dana 60? Shold i try to sell the 14b/trade for a 60? I have never worked with a 14b so schoolme on the 14b both pros and cons, thanks.

I am pretty sure the 14 bolt is stronger then a dana 60... the only downfall is the pumpkins on 14 bolts are huge.

Weight and ground clearence are it's downfalls. Shave the bottom, convert to disc brakes, weld the carrier, instal gears, and enjoy!!!

I doubt that you'll ever break anything in there if you set it up correctly the 1st time.
