As for getting it on the road it is a flip kit drop, so it would have to be one heck of a spacer. I'm actually getting my stock wheels back and just going to slap those on until I can figure everything out.
Now lets see a pic of what's parked next to it!
And have to post your color sand/cut/polish recipe. That paint job is perfect!
*Disclaimer* I'm not at all familiar with how these trucks are normally done with large dually rims...
I don't believe that a cab&chassis rear axle is a good option here. That will narrow up the track width way too much. Spacers would be needed, which I guess is why it works for most folks because they use an 8-10 lug adapter.
If you run a SRW axle, that will put the track width somewhere close to what is needed? I don't recall the difference compared to the D70 dually axle.
Another option may be a 14bolt full float axle from a G30 van. Iirc, they are a couple inches wider than a SRW truck axle and probably just a smidgen narrower than a full width dually axle.
Here's some reference info for you. I've posted this picture on the forum before (photo #1), its one I grabbed off the internet.
Form what I read, this is a chassis cab truck with a short bed installed. It is running standard 16" dually wheels, that just barely stick out from stand fenders. The inner tire is close to the spring with this set up (see photo #2 & 3). FYI the chassis cab rear end is a 14 Bolt, not a Dana 70 like you probably have. Photo #4 is my K30 SRW with a 14 bolt, but it has 13x3.5" drums like a dually does. My drums are spaced a little further out than the Chassis cab version.
I talked with a few guys yesterday and may just either narrow the rear and or try and find a 3/4 ton rear end.
I greatly appreciate everyone’s knowledge
If you have to say "No Offense" then why post? I'll never understand that mentality.No offense, but---YUK!!
Don't bother with a 3/4 ton rear axle unless it's free. A rear from a 1 ton (single rear wheel) truck will bolt right in without having to relocate the spring perches and shock mounts.
Do you even need the DRW hubs? Still not enough clearance with the SRW hubs? Take any pictures showing the fitment differences?If you have to say "No Offense" then why post? I'll never understand that mentality.
Best thing about our hobby is we build them for ourselves not for everyone else.
That's exactly what I did. I got a SRW and I'm swapping on DRW C&C Hubs this week it should be on the road. Thanks for all the help everyone.
