    So i have scored a 14 bolt out of a heavy duty 1 ton i believe. i havent picked it up yet, but its better than the 10 i have now...
    so i have a set of wheels (16 x8 8 lug for the 8 lug rear, but what about the front??? what should i do about it? i dont want to run the 15x 10 6 lug...
    what front axle would make a good strong but cheap front end???

    Get the backing plate, rotor/hub assembly, and bearings from a 3/4 ton truck and slap them on your 10B. If you have a late 70-up truck then you don't have to worry about the spindle. Everything else just bolts up. Strength of the 10B is going to be equal to a D44.

    Get 8 lug D44 outer stuff. Rotors and calipers can be bought, reman, for cheap. The rest can come from a junkyard.
