    Switching to 3/4 ton axles.Someone said they put 15 inch 8-lug pattern wheels on there 14 bolt and dana 60.But had to grind about 1/8 to 1/4 inch off front calipers.Does this effect the calipers soundness.I don't want it breaking under braking.THe reason i'm soo interested is because i have a set of 35" tires.And buying just new rims would put less of a strain on the old pocket book.Thanks

    I just did mine, a 60 front axel, and i have 15 inch wheels. we ground of aboput an 8th and i added a small spacer to the front, and it works like a charm.

    89K5 payed 3k for the rig, spent almost 7k in the last 6 months on upgrades!!!!

    What size width wise where your rims.What make and model where they.Where they aluminum or steel.I'm really looking for 15x10 black steel rims.
