    I have some H1 rimes now. Is there a way or do you still need to cut out the center and weld in a new one? Any help would be great thx mike

    I run stock H1 rims on on my DRW D60 and my DRW D70 and it works just fine. White-Rhyno on here runs stock H1 rims on his DRW D60, and he has a SRW 14bolt in the back w/ a 3 or 4" spacer and that works fine too.

    and from the feedback i have heard from them, you are very lucky to have them.

    the H1 rims will fit a DRW D60, and a DRW D70, just fine.

    There are no 14 bolts with a WMS wide enough to match the front dually D60, this will force you to run big wheel spacers in the rear (3"~3.5" wide). White Rhyno is successfully running this set up. Good spacers are VERY expensive to buy.

    or run a Dana 70 and not have to worry about the weak spot that spacers create. :rolleyes: Dana 70s are in the rear of EVERY full width dually.

    Spacers aren't as bad as a lot of people make them out to be, you get what you pay for and you have to maintain them just like everything else.

    As stated you'll need the D70HD, while these are in a lot of duallies there not in all of them. It'll need to be a 73-87(91) 2nd gen body style, full bodied truck - no cab chassis's and no 88+ C/K series.

    Added confusion - the D70HD was used in some (or maybe all) of the 88 and 89 C/K duallies but I'm not 100% sure of the complete application to look for. You can't go wrong with the 73-87(91) trucks.

    when you consider you're taking at least 300 ft/lb of torque, multiplied by 2.52 (lowest auto 1st gear IIRC), then the low range of a 203 or 205)- x 2.0, multiplied by the gear ratio (im assuming at least 4.10s since there's a '60 involved) you come up with about 6200 ft/lb of torque. way more than i'd want to subject my wheel studs to with the added leverage of a spacer.
