    Has anyone here converted an 8 lug front axle (DANA60) to a 6 lug patern??? Are there anyone that makes a kit??? I'd like to keep my tire/wheel combonation and go to a 1 ton axle.

    It's ok to love your truck.

    I know that Currie and Dynatrac make kits for the 5 x5 1/2 pattern, so 6 x 5 1/2 shouldn't be a problem. Haven't seen a kit specifically for the 6 lug though. Also, might check w/ Waggoner Machine in OK. They are the ones making the 3.6-1 low gear set for the NP203.
