D30 parts swap questions!!!

First off I want to say thnx to WILL for his quick response to try and keep my out of the dog house with the wife!!!

My question is, Can you swap the 6 bolt hubs from a pre 81 D30 with the 5 bolt hubs on my 82??? I heard this from a guy and would like to confirm this!!! And would the 6 bolt hubs be any better than the 5 bolt hubs?? I new the stock hubs wouldn't hold up forever. I was just trying to get another hub quick so the wife could have her jeep back.
As for now, Im in the dog house with no lockout yet and I need to drill out the two of the five bolts that hold the lockout to the hub!!!!

Yes. Do you have the spindle to go with the 6 bolt hubs? I'm not sure if they are different or not. The knuckles are the same for both. The brakes are different but interchangable. The wide trac uses calipers that slide on bolts. The narrow trac has a bracket that bolts to the same holes the wide trac's bolt to. I am using the narrow trac spindles, hubs and brakes on my wide trac axle. I would have used the wide trac brakes but I used the calipers that were already bolted on and bled.

I do have a pair of 5 bolt lockouts too. Unfortunately, they are still in the storage building in Rogers, 3 hours away.

Re: D30 parts swap questions!!!

I doubt any of the drum brake stuff will work. Other then the locking hubs and maybe bearings.

I havent done this swap in person, but i did give all my d30 parts to my bro in law when i swaped to a 44. He told me he just used my hubs, rotors, and locking hubs. He said the spindles were the same.

The 6 bolt hubs are a much, much better option. My bro in law would brake one lockout every trip. When he swapped to my 6 bolt lockouts he never broke another.
