Going from 5x4.5 to waggy 6 lug?

I'm putting a waggy d44 that's 6 lug up front and have an 8.8 in the back on my tj that's 5x4.5 bolt pattern right now. I'm trying to find wheel spacers/ adapters that will allow me to do it but the only 2 sites i've found (performance wheel and spidertrax) don't have a spacer that will work listed. Anybody know of another site or shop that could make them? The only other option i see is getting my axle re-drilled and my discs re-drilled, don't want to do that if i can avoid it, since i'm trying to keep costs down.

If I was you I would change the front to 5 on 5 1/2 and get an adaptor for 5 on 4 1/2 to the 5 on 5 1/2. You should be able to find an adaptor to do that.
