    What has to be changed on a dually D60 to make it the same as a regular D60. Is it the same backing plate, rotors, calipers, and steering? I was thinking it was just the hubs that were different. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif Are the parts available at the local autoparts store?

    <font color="green"> Just the hubs are different, the SRW hubs are going for about $300 right now, so bring your wallet! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif </font color>

    SRW hub? Single rear wheel?

    So I can just change hub and put it back on the same rotor and it will be the same as a regular D60?

    you can do that or have a machine shop move the wheel mounting surface back down to the same as a SRW. I think Wagoner machine shop charges $250 ??? for that service too.

    You can reuse the dually rotor BUT the holes in the rotor are not the right size and will need to be drilled open to accomodate the correct studs.

    If you didnt want to change the hubs you could always run hummer beadlocks like Mike is on project eyeore.

    I have 2 beadlock rims like that to use if I get the axle.

    Thanks for the ebay link too, I never thought of that.

    If you're talking about running the humvee bead-locks just running the DRW rear wont help, it isn't any wider. What you need are DRW spacers, or run the rim backward.

    Or keep it narrower in the back.
    Or get a Van 14bFF.

    Nope, the humvee wheels have too much backspacing to just run-even w/ a van housing.

    ive heard of some success flipping them in the rear dont know how the nuts will seat but seems like for ORO rig that you would be fine /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I think im just gonna get mine recentered. although i do like the hub protection 7" on a dually front provide. But thats why you get bigger tires /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    you can get te d60 hubs from Dynatrack. I called them and they said something like $280 side for the hub,rotor,studs and races assembled. Not too bad for new stuff.

    I tried them on backwards once with 36's. They stick out too far. What is this DRW spacer? How far does it space out the wheels and can I instal it on my FF?

    Thanks for all the other input.
