Lots of variables so it kinda depends on what kind of axle you want, gearing/lockers, coils or leafs, steering setup, etc...
The whole point to sas my truck would be to have lockers. But I just want like 3 inch lift on 33s don't know much about trucks yet, raced motocross my whole life and drove a 1967 c10 till I got my tacoma

You can have lockers now! Wayyyy simpler to install a couple lockers than design/build a solid axle under your truck.

talk to the guys at East Coast Gear Supply, they can set you up with a front locker that all you have to do is drop your current front diff and bolt up the new one with new fluid.

If it's an air locker, you'll need to install the air compressor and plumb it as well, but still - waaaaaaay easier than doing a SAC

Yup! East Coast Gear Supply is the shit! Ordered from them a few times and every experience was excellent. Great company to do business with. You get 4 or 5 emails confirming your order and when it ships. Awesome.

Yeah but you can write it off as a business expense because it's an advertisement, right? LOL

Yeah thats why I built my own axles. I can buy a pro-rock 60 or build almost the same thing for half the cost. These would have been alot more to buy.

I do wish I had ORI's though

They are 1/4", bigger than what was on there, plus they were free If they bend I'll get some 3/8" or 1/2" cut out.

Is there any reason I shouldn't go with a D60 rear instead of a 14 bolt? Seems they're easier to find around here for some reason, and I assume more parts would be interchangeable with the front. (bearings, seals, gears, etc.?)

Would I get more clearance out of a shaved D60 rear as opposed to a shaved 14 bolt?

60 is alot better on clearance than 14B. If you build the 60 with 35 spline then the shafts are basically the same size too. The only thing the 14B ends up ahead on is the ring gear size.

Its all whats avaiable and what you wanna spend. I found a D60 Rear just converted to disc brakes, with an LSD and 4.56 gears for $250. Thats a pretty good starting point for a decent axle.

I sold the tracloc for $100, replaced it with an ARB, bored the spindles, put 35 spline chromos in it, and a drive flange to replace the yoke. I dont think I will have to worry about it breaking.

14b

beef 1.5 30 spline FF shafts stock
beef 10.5 ring gear
pinion support bearing and massive pinion
massive carrier
beef housing and .5 thick axle tubes
easier to set up gears

For my cruiser stronger is better so that's the mentality I'm going into this with. For you, maybe you'd rather have almost as strong and a little more clearance. Or maybe price.

Just saying...

Don't forget the Dana 70, for some light weight and running under 40s a 60 would be the better choice.
