    I recently came across a 14 bolt but I don't want to get new wheels because I just bought new wheels. Can I make the 14 Bolt a 6 lug ? What is involved in that ? Is it worth it ? Thanks,

    Someone posted a link to a place that makes 14b ff 6 lug hubs , called Gradys . Forgot the link , sorry , will try to find it . You of course need to go disc brakes right of the bat to do it . And turn your axleshafts down to fit with most 6 lug rims , or ghetto it by mounting wheels , THEN sliding in axleshafts /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Don't think its worthwhile if you are trying to save money, best way to save money is plan ahead and research purchases before hand. Sometimes you have to eat a few bucks now and again, we've all done it /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    FF right ? you never said,

    and yu never know..

    yes FF can be converted to 6 lug, gonna spend some $ but yes,

    all depends on if you really have to have the 6 lug look,

    id swap it all over to 8 lug personally and trade off the wheels for 8 lugs, youll lose less $ this way than converting to 6 lug FF most likelyl, so,.,

    good luck either way

    i did it to my truck, worked out good but by the time i was done i could have bought a set of 8 lugs. i really liked my 6 lugers and they were 6 months old so i wanted to kept them. i think i have some pics posted in my gallery if ya want to check it out /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks for everyone's input. I weighed both options and I think I will just convert to 8 lug. Sounds cheaper and less of a hassle. Thanks again.
