    Find a 14b sf or full float. The 6 lug sf will fit 15" rims and use your current wheels. If you go with the 8 luggers, then you need to get new wheels, or adapters. In the long run you are probobly better off going with an 8 lugger though. I run an 8 lug 14bsf with 8 lug 10 bolt and 35's without any trouble. Just go easy on the gas.

    If you can live it without it and can stand letting it sit and being patient collecting all the parts and slowly working on it sure let it sit and do it right. But if its a daily driver you need to get back and forth to work in and rely on do a temp fix on the 10 bolt and start hunting around for that 14ff. I have a hard time just letting mine sit until I can afford to fix it, I start getting Blazer withdrawls /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif

    I run a 14ff with 15x10 rims and never had any problems work great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
