Very nice! Now it just needs a good set of 8-lugs to finish the look off

Great work you're doing!

I'd love to talk with you about a few things- I tried sending a PM, but my post count isnt high enough yet.

My biggest question- does the factory 8 lug hub fit the drop spindle? I'd prefer to maintain the factory hubs to avoid swapping the rear axles.

I'd be happy to share my phone number if thats better?

Thanks and please keep posting updates!

Morgan

I'd have to do some measuring to see if the 8 lug unibearings would fit onto the modified 1/2 ton dropped spindles,I have stock 1500 and 2500 spindles laying around to check.

That would be great, thanks! My truck is also 2wd so I'm certain the specs will be comparable to yours.
