    I don't actually know, I haven't mounted them yet. That pic is on his axle before I bought them. All 4 are bored out the same.

    Whether they needed it or not, I got wheels and tires pretty cheap. As long as they work, I don't care.

    I put a set on my 74 to get it home when I picked it up. the rears fit fine, but the fronts needed a tiny but of work to fit over the front hub. I have a big hub dana 44. some work with rough grit sandpaper was enough for them to slide on.

    I was curious about fitment on the hubs for a 14 bolt rear axle was why I had asked, FWIW. Now that I think about it when I convert my front to 8 lug I wonder if the size of the hub diameter changes. Food for thought. I might just see about buying a separate 10 bolt to rebuild, that way when it comes time to swap all I have to do is drop the old axle and swap the new one in...
