    just add some hummer rims to that or something with at least 7-8" of back spacing and you should be good to go.
    Thats what I did.

    is it just our perspective or are your front springs no where near to lining up with the axle mounts?

    The Whiteknight runs a dually front with non-deep rims. Never noticed how freaking wide it is?

    hummer rims are in the works.

    Sleddog- Everything lines up nice, it must just be the angle of the pic.

    It's the front axle out of a 4x4 dually. Ever notice how the rims on a dually are different? There is a spacer to make the hub wider so it can have that poofed out rim shaped like a bowl. When you put a normal rim on.....scroll up to the first picture...:wink1:

    hmmm. i had no idea. what's the purpose behind having such a wide front end in a dually, but then making the backspacing such that the wheel looks normal?

    angle of the pic, coupled with the fact that the axle isnt under the truck yet would be my guess.

    Is there anything in the way or that needs to be changed to run a dually front with stock hummer rims?

    Glad I found this thread. K5er4Life, Nice looking truck.

    So all I need is dually hubs to put on my D60 to run the stock hummer rims......Got it.

    What about my 14FF?
    Do I just put dually hubs on that also?
    Will it work with disk brakes?
    Axle shafts the same or no?
    Anything else I should know?

    you can leave your 14 bolt alone and they will work, it will just tuck the tire in a bit though. Theres a few things you can do to push them back out
    1. Get wheel spacers
    2. Modfy a set of front drw d60 hubs for the back (pirate has info)
    3. Run a van 14 bolt
    4. Run a d70
    5. Run a d70 and 14 bolt hubs (pushing the spacing out evem farther

    When you swap on drw hubs you need new rotors too

    Damn, don't really want to get that involved in it only to loose the ability to run standard size offset rims. (without being illegal)
