    I already have the cash to get the axles I just dont have the TIME to get out the the JY... PLUS if I wait til new years day I can take advantage of the 1/2 off deals at pick a part... I called them yesterday and they said any axles 3/4 and up are 125 a piece ... so on that day I can score them BOTH for that much... I hope to find a dually 4x4 with a tow pack so I can get the 4:56 gears... GO FORD SUPER DUTY!!!

    Hey man I just wanted to let you know that the super duty 60s use a different bolt pattern and almost all brake set ups require a 20" rim.

    They use an 8x170mm bolt pattern and tend to be around 72" wide.

    Finding wheels and tires that will fit the axle are
    I had one that I just gave away for 500.00 because of how much work it was going to take to get before i could use it.

    There is a company called EMS that can put a new lug pattern in your hubs and machine the knuckles so that you can run high steer

    Ive done LOTS of research thus far on the setups and found that mid 90's axles from a f250 should be the same pattern the ONLY modification you need to make is to remove a small lip on the inside of the hummer wheel... like 1/8 of material and since its aluminum its pretty easy... thats what I work with every day ! If not Ill make a lug pattern template to take with me to the JY ...Im pretty excited

    Im sure he means they machined the center hole out larger, so that with would fit on something with a larger hub. Hub centeric means the hub centers the wheels, not the lug nuts

    Im with Iron Man. In 96' fford changed the 250 and 350 to the 8 170mm pattern. I had a set of wheels I was trying to sale for a friend that came off his 96' f250 and every one wanted them since they were aluminum but they wont fir the chevy/dodge axles. Good luck on your JY shopping spree..if it was 26* with a foot of snow on the ground Id hit up our pull and pay yard...damn Ohio weather..lol
