    <font color="green"> The front is more or less a bolt in, your biggest problem is the fact that the dually hubs are not going to work correctly for you if you want to use normal wheels. New SRW hubs will run you almost $400 for the pair. The rear dually axle should work fine, but you will need to relocate the spring perches and the shock mounts, as they are in different locations on the lighter duty trucks. The front driveshaft will bolt to the D60 but you'll need a conversion joint for the rear. </font>

    14 bolts are a dime a dozen, find a single wheel one, and dont pay more then 200 bucks, unless it has a locker, and a good set of gears in it, 4:56's or lower. numerically higher.
