I thought there was an adapter that would mimic one hub or the other, in this case, fit a Ford hub and provide a GM center. If done right, I think it'll be not only good, but actually great. But, if you don't want to go that way, the two front tires can become your rear spare tires, and then carry two of the tires off the Ford axle for front spares. Win win either way.

making progress.

that sleepers not square, one side has a drip rail and the other doesnt. and neither is the front of the bed from the cab being pushed into it. so the bottom corner of the driverside of the bed hits the cab. should be easy to cut bed back and reweld

the ford hub is bigger then the chevy so it would have to be a adapter spacer, which i am against. i found out the front wheels arent finished on both sides so they can only be on the front. so im am just going to get them machined to fit the ford hub.

Ah, I always thought those polished wheels had something wrong with them, now I know.

This thing is gonna be awesome. Iíve always wanted an older ford ramp truck but they are almost nonexistent. Seems like all the ramp trucks I find are chevys. Almost bought a ford rollback a while back but I donít like all the extra hydraulics and higher deck height. Once this thing is done you need to load the bronco and head up north for some wheeling.

As far as i know, the adapter bolts in place of the wheel, then the wheel gets bolted to it. Just has to be big enough to clear the lockout.

You can run those front wheels in the rear inner position without seei g the unpolished backside.

I see ford occasionally dont think ive ever seen a dodge though. But both of them especially with a hodges bed are ridiculously expensive. They allways seem to go for 5,000+. Rignt now in definetly under 2000 after selling the extra chevy parts. Definitely plan on taking the bronco up north with it.

My inner rears are steel. Also i dont think the fronts have enough offset to be in the rear.
I dont want any spacer with this much weight i dont trust them.

Ah, I havent followed the more recent parts.

I was talking the actual dually adapters that the factory uses to convert a normal axle to the dual configuration. I wasnt talking spacers that people use to widen their stance.

That's what i wanted to do originally. I havnt seen the ford but on the chevy the factory spacer is part of the rotor and hub.

I have the ford ones in my garage. The spacer is part of the hub that bolts to the rotor.
