    Should be picking up a 60 soon and wanted to know if the brakes and hubs could be swaped over from a 3/4 10 bolt, i just put new brakes on the 10 and dont want to grind the hell out of the 60 to fit 15" rims. TIA

    Sorry but the parts don't interchange.

    FYI - Somebody is selling new 6 lug D60 bearing hubs on Ebay for $185 each and WMS makes a caliper bracket to run the small calipers.

    Really ? One of the reasons I am dead set on running my 12 bolt rear and 10 bolt front as long as I can is I like my 6 lug rims ( and spare set ). I was always wondering why no one casts/machines these. I saw where new d60 hubs were made on another site, and I thought if someone made some d60 AND 14bff 6 lug hubs ( wouldn't need to turn axles, install them after wheels ) they would sell like hotcakes ( no grinding needed for 15 inch wheels )

    Look here, Ebay Auction. The auction itself has ended but there is a pic and contact info in the description. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I think the seller is Six States Drivetrain (or something like that) which is the company that bought the bearing hub molds from Dana. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Do a search, they do make a bracket so you can run 3/4 ton calipers and rotors on a 60. It beats all that grinding
