    You will need everything from the backing plates out AFAIK. I do know the axle shafts are the same so it is possible.

    SRW 14 bolt parts will not work on a dually 14 bolt (assuming this is a Cab and Chassis axle). Axleshafts I think are the same, but where the backing plate bolts on is totally different spot and the axle itself is much narrower.

    yea ill see if i can borrow some 8 lug rims from my pop and see if they fit. i guess im better off finding a single wheel 14 bolt though because the brakes arent on the axles i have. all i have are the bare axles with now brakes on them. my dad has them on his truck now :mad:
