    I didn't read it, but there are a lot of mistakes in there that BillaVista has not had the time to correct yet.

    Dont quote me on this but Im pretty sure thats wrong... I think dually axles are only about 2"wider then SRW axles and that would bake a van axle the same width or close as a regular axle.... I think van axles are actually wider then duallys's

    The valuable extra wide 14 bolts are from step vans, like a bread delivery truck, rather than passenger vans.
