    13\"/14 bolt brake drum swap

    I have a 14 bolt from a 1t. It has the 13" brake drums, can I swap the smaller 11.5" drums in fom a 3/4t? I presume you have to swap every thing from the backing plates out.

    Yes you can swap it all but why?

    Don't touch a thing!!! [​IMG]

    Those 15" wheels WILL fit just fine!! [​IMG]

    Its the front you need to worry about making the 15" wheels fit. [​IMG]


    I'm not picking my nose...I'm just pointing at my brain!! [​IMG]

    What about the 15" 14bFF drums in the back... backspacing?

    I started with nothing and I still have most of that left! - <a target="_blank" href=http://www.echobit.com:81/k5/> Pictures</a>

    I have 15x10 with 4 1/8" backspacing and they clear fine. Like Wes said the front is the problem.
