ive seen it before but arent the power wagons 14 bolt fronts?
uhhhh....... Kiiiiinda... no. They do have 14 bolts holding the ring gear to the carrier, and cover to the diff, but thats where the similarities end.

Well...

The AAM9.25 solid axle under all 3rd gen Dodge 4x4 HD's uses the same carrier as the 9.25" IFS housing AND the 9.25 14SF.

So technically Power Wagon's do have a 14 bolt under the front end, just not a 14FF.

I thought about that at 1st.... but why is the 14sf referred to as the 9.5? :think:

The rear end uses standard cut gears and the front end uses reverse cut gears. I'd guess they made the rear gears slightly larger for the more demanding use.

I'm pretty sure it's because the ring gear is 9.5" in diameter. I could be wrong.

He said the same carrier. The ring gear is still 9.5" across in the rear applications.

Interesting. Learn something new evety day. I know you can use the 9.25 IFS gears in the AAM (not visa-versa), but can one use the rear 9.5 gears in either the IFS or the AAM?

Since the low pinion gears cant fit into a high pinion housing, no. Just like a Chevrolet D60 and a HP Ford 60, the carriers are interchangeable (IIRC) but the gears arent.
