    we just went through this with Dremu.
    If you have the jb7 3/4 ton style spindle and brakes you will need to change the spindle and out ( spindle, hub rotor, calipers) to the 1 ton dually style jb8.

    How does $200 sound for everything from the spidles out? Friend of mine in Benton City has it all.

    If your calipers have a round pin to hold them in like the 4wd style then you have the jb7.

    im: thanks for the info... have to check it out...

    kenny: gonna have to think about it... I thought originally that I could "go dually" for cheap... now it looks like its gonna cost a lot of coin. It'd be easier/cheaper to sell the dually rims I have collected and just stick with SRW... if I have $200 to spend I'd wanna put it towards steel/wood/hardware for the flatbed... :(

    You can always make him an offer. Worst he could say would be no.

    I've seen factory adapters used by GM that bolt onto your existing SRW rotor which then in turn moves the mounting surface outboard the appropiate amount for the DRW wheels. Just a thought, don't know how much they are new or if anyone may have a used set.
