    /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gifThey don't fit /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.It's an 8 lug 10 bolt. Any body have pics of their grinding jobs. I want to see where and how much I have to grind. Or just a good description will do. Thanks.

    The 3/4 ton's are different than the d60's. You end up grinding more on the backing plates than on the calipers themselves. If I remeber right the two really high spots are just below the caliper and on the little bulge on the top not far from the caliper. I had to grind mine a lot thinner than I would have liked on the top, but I have locked up my 35" Mud-Terrains since then with no problems. So basicly, take it slow, and remove as little as possible, and you should be OK. Good luck. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    or you COULD get your ½ton backing plates and callipers but it might not stop as well

    I already tried putting the half ton sruff back on. The 3/4 ton rotors are too big. The calipers won't fit then.

    It all depends on the backspacing of your rim. I banged down the backing plates and only ground down the caliper, that's after i found out it would be easier that way. the other side wasn't so lucky.

    Well it's done. I bolted the rims on drove it 20 feet tooke the rims back off, and ground down where it was rubbing. Everything spins free now and I learned something new /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. I also took pics for later if anybody needs an example.
