Re: TJ D30 hub conversion to 5x5.5\"??
Its a very good set up but its a bit pricey.You need to buy the Warn HD inner axles to accept the bigger U joints : $300 both sides. You will need the Warn CJ axle Hub Conversion Kit : $750. 2 new cast Rotors $200,they need to be machined to allow the hub to fit through the center. Its a strong axle when complete,but when its all said and done you will have spent at least $1400. I installed this set up,new R&P 4.56 gears,an ARB,new seals and brakes. Then I tallied everything up(over $2400) and felt more than a little stupid when I figured I could have had a custom built for the same price. It makes me feel like I need to go put in some more overtime at work,just to think about it.
