    I am planning on putting beadlocks on my truck. I don't really know that much about 'em. Can anybody give me some help on this?? I want to run 15X12 with 3" of back spacing on the Dana 60/14FF. I need pros and cons of different brands.

    ALL YOU WILL NEED TO DO IS GRIND THE FRT. CALIPERS DOWN SO THE 15IN WHEELS WILL FIT ON THE DANA 60F.
    I ALSO RUN 15IN. BEADLOCKS ON A 60F/14FF.
    (GET A BIG GRINDER)

    <font color=blue>Yeah what he said. An 8" grinder will make your life easier. Three inches of backspacing is a little much, 3 3/4 will fit with not much more grinding, and it won't decrease your turning radius as much. I have a picture of a D60 caliper that is ground to fit a 15x10 with 4 1/8" backspace. Send me an email if you want it
