    There are no '75 D60's. D60 fronts came out in '77.

    The perches are around 31.5" center to center of the pin holes.

    Approximately $200 or slightly more to machine the hub.

    You might be able to get lucky and find someone else who has the SRW hubs and needs the DRW ones and swap with you. Even check out POR and see if anybody over there wants to swap with you.

    I think it was Donovan and I also remembering reading that Blazen91 was doing it, too.

    There were no 1 ton 4x4's before '77. 3/4 ton 4x4 was the largest you could go.
    1 tons were available before '77, but only in 2wd configuration. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
