Re: swap 8 lugs to 5x5.5 ?
For the front there are two alternatives that I know of:
Warn sells their 5 on 5.5" hubs. They should use the same spindle, bearings, and lock-out hubs as a Dana 60. The bearing and brake offset might have to be figured out, but I think they have it figured out.
Also, I've seen articles where Currie takes an F450 hub and turns it down and makes it 5 on 5.5". Sounds expensive.
For the rear gradysoffroad has recently released a full floating hub that works on a Dana 60, 70 or GM 14 Bolt (those axles share the same spindle size, bearing, nuts, etc) in 5 and 6 lug patterns. It is is made with Alloy Aluminums and is set-up to work with disc brakes. It uses the rest of the stock components like shafts, spindles, etc.
