    The only differance is the wheel bearing huubs and the size of the holes that mount the rotor to the wheel bearing hubs.

    I'm puting one in my Sub right now.

    So I dont have to change anything then? Ive heard the knuckles and hubs have to be changed to get the tires back to the right width, Im not sure, and havent picked the axle up yet. Thanks for the input and advice.

    You dont have to change the knuckles or spindles. Only the bearing hubs and rotors are different.

    Or you could keep the dually hubs and run un modified HMMV beadlocks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif All you would need is a Dually Dana 70 rear axle (pickup bed dually not cab/chassis 14FF) with 2 or 2.5" spacers on each side to even it out with the front.
