Does your truck have the stock straight axle or is it sub-framed ?
stock front, i dont think im tooooo concerned about the bolt pattern as i was planning on maybe swapping wheels, and really i just need to get back on the road, for nowi may just do some of those summit racing wheels if i can get em in the right pattern, but do you think that this rear end will work, and what would you do, working on a tight budget, take the rear with a ladderbar set up and try to convert (not sure what is involved with this) or pick up just the rear end and will it work just welding on new spring perches? if this width is the same it should work just fine right?
