    The 88-98 axles are different width I do believe, so I doubt it will fit.

    Yup, the shaft lengths changed with the body style. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Easy to go 6-lug on the pickup though. Get a rear end and rotors from a light-duty C2500. Probably not worth doing just for a set of wheels... unless the rear end is on its way out, and it needs a brake job /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
