wheel bolt pattern question!! help

I have a 1/2 ton d44 front from a j10 wagoneer ('75) with 6 lug front rotors, and a d 60 FF rear to put in as well (8 lug). What should I do about my lug pattern, as I would like them all to match?
I could switch the front to 8 lug, but wouldnt that be expensive?... where would i get the rotors?/ inner hubs (not lockouts). or I could switch the rear to 6 lug cuz it needs new wheel studs anyway (but is the front 6 lug a 6 x 6.5 or what? and will it be big enough to switch the rear to and not have clearance probs w/ the FF part of the 60 rear?

I'm open to all suggestions, I appreciate anyone's ideas!

Hey-It would be easier to change out the rear FF section and get that either swapped out for the 6-bolt pattern or have it sent out for redoing the bolt pattern. On finding a bolt pattern on a 6-bolt is just center-center, opposite studs.

The 3/4t (8 lug) knuckles are the same as the ones you have, I don't remember if the spindles are. If you can get the spindles, and everything from there out you're all set, with 8 lug stuff, The only problem is the extra weight of these parts, other than that it's a bolt-on with factory parts.
