    Said another way, can I use 8-lug wheels from a similar-year 4WD on a 2WD or vice versa?

    I seem to recall that the 88+ IFS trucks have different offset or backspacing or whatever you call it, than the old solid axle stuff.

    Question is, do the old IFS trucks also require weird offset?

    I believe its a "one size fits all" thing for 8 lug wheels /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Acha. Maybe the 6 lug ones are different, or maybe I picked a hell of a day to stop sniffing glue. ("Airplane!")

    Thanks!
