Re: how to convert 6 to 8

i dunno, more welding and fabbing involved in converting to 8 lug ifs.

sfa stuff would for the most part be straight bolt on. you could even leave the ifs brackets if you want incase the 8 lug solid axle isnt as strong as you had planned on. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
