    There was a company making new bearing hubs and selling them for like $300/pair. They had an option where you could get 5 on 5.5, 6 on 5.5, or 8 on 6.5. I don't remember the company name.

    Seems that Six States/4wd Factory sell them for $350/pair. Does anyone even buy stuff from Six States anymore?

    I was curious if these were turned down stock hubs redrilled or what, I have a machine shop willing to try to turn the body down to clear and fill the lug holes and redrill them, worth trying? would it make the hub too weak?

    Dynatrac is expensive, their kit is probably like $1000 to convert to 6 lug.

    So what is the best(cheapest) way to run 6 lug wheels on a Dana 60, besides wheel spacers. I am rebuilding the 60 tip to tip and have a set of 6 lug 15" rims I'd sure like to run.

    There is a guy on pirate selling them. Something like $300 for a pair with free shipping. That would cover the front but what do you do on the 14 bolt?

    this is driving me mad, I know someone sells aftermarket 14 bolt hubs, I looked at the site last [censored] week but I can't find it again. I can picture the parts, I can picture the ad in the damn magazines and nothing.

    what about the idea of drilling the hub for 6 lugs? Dad has a 12 bolt sitting outside from under a pickup, it was 6 lug but he took it to a machine shop and had the 6 lug holes plugged and 5 lug holes drilled to fit it under race cars. Grr problem is the 6 lug 60 hubs I am finding are for Chevy axles /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. Damn Ford.

    even if there were, the grinding to make them fit over D60 brakes qould probably be too much. i'm tossing around the idea of running 16" wheels, possibly even 16.5" beadlocks just so i can avoid cutting my brakes.

    You can swap 5 lug 2wd axles into a 6 lug 12 bolt 1/2 ton rear axle--they are interchangeable.The 2wd ones have the 5 lug,5 inch bolt circle,same as Caddy's,Impala's,Buicks,etc.
    I ran a 2wd axle in a 71 blazer for 2 years and carried 2 different spare tires and rims till I found out the axles would interchange!. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
