    To put on a 10 bolt front 8 lug to mount dually wheels?

    I'm wanting to remove the D60 (:rolleyes: :D) and replace that for a 10 bolt. I want to put the dually wheels back on but need spacers to do so.
    So, how wide am I looking at buying?

    i thought drw d60 f wms = 77" & a 10 bolt f wms = 69" so u ware looking at a 8" difference. 4" per side

    I can't remember the WMS's of either one. I'm too lazy right now to go out to the shop and remove the tires just to measure. I'm doing it like Tommy Boy did: "you can get a good look at a T-bone steak by sticking your head up a bulls ass.....but I'd rather take the butchers word for it."

    Wes, are you selling this rig, or keeping it? I have a dodge DRW D60 4.56 external hub we can trade on if you need it.

    Jim, I'm selling it. Keeping the good stuff (D60) for something else and putting the 10 bolt in place of it. Just don't wanna run standard steelie wheels. If you have the spacers, I'd be interested in buying.

    I'm surprised to hear the money was still taped to the plate. I took a risk to see if I could trust USPS to do their job or not.

    on srw to drw for a 60 only its 4" per side.

    idea tho. go find the late 88-up drw stuff from chevy. the box vans also. thay run a 4" bolt on spacer to convert all srw to drw fronts. so thay only make srw stuff but add the bolt on drw spacer. its cast iron.
