OT question about duallies

I had a friend ask me today why 1 ton pickups have the tires in the front offset way behind the rim. I guess he assumed since I have a CJ-7 in about 50 pieces I should know this, but I don't. I thought maybe it was to take some pressure off the front axle u-joints, bearings or whatever, but that is just a guess.

Puts the weight of the truck over the top of the bearings.

Re: OT question about duallies

No, No, No, it's real simple. Not all 1-Tons are like that, just the Duallies. The Duallies run the bud rims on the front for rotating purposes, this way all the rims are the same on the truck. And they run them on the rear so that when they are dualed, the tires do not rub. Thanks

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] Technically........the rims are deep dished to dual up without rubbing, just as he said; and the DESIGN of the front spindle puts the weight in the right spot. They had to fit the spindle to the wheel, not the wheel to the spindle. They HAD to go with the deep wheels, so that dictated the design of the spindle.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img]
