4.5 to 5.5 hubs

I have done the unimaginable and modified my YJ (d30,d35) front locking hubs and full float rear without changing to 5.5 inch bolt patern rims. I have Warn brackets on the rear for disk brakes

Is there a way to correct this with outgoing to the poor house.

Re: 4.5 to 5.5 hubs

Is there a way to correct what? You don't like the hub conversion and full floater rear?

Re: 4.5 to 5.5 hubs

I love the setup, however I would like to have the bigger hubs that were on the CJ's 5 studs at 5 and a half inch bolt patern. I have to use locking hubs on the rear. I would prefer the drive flange. Warn says that there is no flange for the small hubs.

I would have to say no then. It would probably be cheaper to just order a whole kit than just the parts to do it. Sorry. Carry lots of spare rear hubs.
