    the only way to know for sure is to pop the diff cover and check the numbers on the ringgear

    the shockmounts sits lower on 2wd-axles than on a 4wd ...

    on the front conversion, all you need are the 8 lug hub/rotor assemblies, and the caliper backing plates. the hub/rotor assemblies you can get brand new at carquest for $67 a piece, and you can find the backing plates on ebay or junkyard.

    i'm pretty sure we are all aware of that. read the guy's post again. he said he wants to do the 8 lug conversion on his front 10 bolt. unless you can find us a 2wd front 10 bolt, i think you're mistaken.

    Jack the back of the truck up and turn the tires slowly by hand. Carefully count the driveshaft rotations. If it turns 3 and 3/4 times, its a 3.73. If it turns a little more than 4 times, its a 4.10
