Going to take a year or so planning on doing Werock in 2019 but hope to have it ready for test runs at FF 2018

Ok Michael and I have decided to do rear steer but have no idea where to start can I just make my 14 bolt a steering axle or am I going to need another 60?

Edit:  This is my opinion which should carry no weight since I have no experience just a lot of reading on the subject.  You'd probably be better off talking to Davies as he is going to do his buggy and may be in the process of building the rear axle now.

You have a few options but it's going to be cheaper to find another 60. 
Links below are for reference on price and parts you may need if you go the 14b route

I would just do a Dana 60. You basically only need the center section since you will need to retube it and center it. You could potentially reuse the factory inner C's if you have the tools, but aftermarket ones will be easier. Plus the newer super duty 60s are a dime a dozen right now
