    You could probably do it for less than $100 if you can find the parts for cheap.

    Depending on what front axle you have right now, you can convert the 6 lug over to 8 by using the bearing hub/rotor assembly and the backing plates. Spindles will depend on what year your rig is and the parts for conversion are off of.

    I'm not picking my nose...I'm just pointing at my brain!! [​IMG]

    There is a good write up in the tech section off the main page that Waxer did when he did the same conversion.
