Default Sources for 14 bolt goodies?

Going to be building a 14 bolt soon, just wondering if anybody had some recommendations for good sources of parts? Gears, shave kits, trusses etc. Web sites? Thanks!

I like Ruffstuff's disc brake brackets and they are a vendor on this site. Check in the vendor marketplace.

Lots of people will trash ballistic due to some issues that the company had in the past.....that being said i have had nothing but positive dealings with them. My buddy built a 14 bolt this spring using all their parts.....everything he received fit like a glove and was very beefy.

Our 14-bolt has Ruff Stuff disk brake brackets and pinion guard, and the TMR 15-bolt shave kit.

Our gears are from DTS, and our friend shaved the gears and housing. He's in Standish and will machine them for others.

Lots of people will trash the company because it has proven itself to be trash.

Whatever.

Neither i nor anyone i personally know have ever had a minutes trouble with them through multiple transactions.

I can't say that about other venders (such as Ruff Stuff) who people seem to swear by.

If you order their stuff from 4wheelparts, its cheaper then artec direct. Artec direct, their shipping is outrageous.
