Aluminum 14b hubs are cheaper for the 14b and it's only 40lbs heavier than a semi float 60 (Which you ran in 4643), also I don't know how an axle that lacks the 3rd pinion bearing is somehow stronger/superior.

Also for $248 each, you get 8x6.5 brand new unit bearings on ebay or $75 each to have your existing ones redrilled, then the world of more common 8x6.5 beadlocks become available to you.
