    you can get a part that looks like a spacer, but converts it from 8 lug to 6

    This had just been covered recently. If meomry serves me right TonyP did this on his 14FF, not sure though /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Do a search in both the Garage and 73-91 forums and you should turn up the answers you are looking for /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yeah i know,i know, ive seen it. but i was wondering if you could get that done similar to how the front becomes an 8 lug, i dont want any spacer or whatever it is. It doenst look safe to me, atleast not for any hardcore rockcrawlin stuff anyway.

    i doubt that tony would make a bad product. the spacer is also good to the track width can be the same with a 14 bolt and the front axle. if you wanna go 6 lug i would suggest go that route. i think ya should just go 8 lug up front. it would prolly be alot easier.

    to do that you will need to have your hubs and axle face plates turned down to allow the 6 lug rim to slide on them, that is the hardest part. The kit is just a simple bolt on ring...I looked and could not find a easy way to do this.
