Whew, finally scored me a Daily driver. So now I'm looking at what else I'd like to do with my solid axle durango. Here's the nitty gritty, it has a half ton D44 up front, and a rear Ford 9". I find myself wanting to progress in tire size (currently have 38.5 SX's) to 46-49's. The rear end I'm not concerned as much as the front end. I'd like to upgrade the front to a one ton, but at the same time can not find a means to match an 8 lug pattern with the ever so popular 5 lug Ford 9 pattern. So, I was wondering if by chance there's an adaptor I could use on the front to convert from 8 to 5 lug? Hell even vise versa to use on the rear and just upgrade to 8 lug all together?

Re: Back on topic

if nothing else, I'll keep it simple and stick with the half tons, with some aftermarket axle shafts, what is the optimum tire these axles could handle? I could settle for a 39.5-42 unless like with the 46-49's its going to want a stronger axle.
