    You mean rear? the front is totaly easy. For a few hundy swap in a 14bff in the rear and front rotors backing plates and you are done.

    Do what he said. Swap in a 14ff rear. Then just find backing plates, hubs, and rotors from an 8 lug 3/4 ton 10B or D44...and swap them onto your 10B. Bingo...8-lug 10B....with slightly larger rotors to boot.
