    I know it's pretty easy to modify the dana 60 dually set up to work with single wheels but what drawbacks would I come into if I left the axle alone and bolted my 38.5 on it. I know the wheels will stick out a decent amount but that might not exactly be a bad thing. How bad will this be on the bearings and kig pins? This is just something I am considering for now until I get around to do the machining. Any advice?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    You call that dirty!?

    My guess would be that it cant be too healthy for the bearings.... but they are monster bearings. Besides looking strange.

    I get all the excercise I need pushing my luck![​IMG]
