    I basically gave up on trying to find used SRW hubs for the D60, so I went to e-bay. I bought mine from Venturetruckparts, out of Ogden Utah (he has a retail accnt. on e-bay) They are spendy ($185 + the ride) but they are new and IMHO, very high quality pieces.

    In terms of rims, I will be running a 15x10" wheel with about 3.75" of backspacing. This will, however, still require a bit of grinding to clear the calipers. that only way to get away with NO grinding on a D60 SRW is to have like 2.5" of backspacing that will make the wheels stick out WAY too far, IMO... /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif

    If you clean up your DRW hubs and paint them you can still recoup some of the cost of the SRW hubs.. I got $140 for my DRW hubs on e-bay.

    These are Warn hubs. He sell them for $350/pair + shipping.
