TransDapt sells wheel adapters but they are not recommended for trucks.

on the E-brake note, i remember seeing one of the hot rod shows on spike TV where they used a pinion mounted emergency brake. so i searched it on yahoo and found this...i can give you no first hand knowledge of the effectiveness of this product, but its an option. (I saw the disclaimer that said do not use on trucks, but...some rules were meant to be broken)

I strongly second the re drill your axles suggestion. however do not pay to have your rotors re drilled. you can do this yourself pretty easily. all you need is a set of transfer punches and a drill press. before you press the studs into your axles place the disks over the axles and turn them so that the holes for the old pattern are between the holes for the new pattern, transfer punch through the holes in the axle and drill them out on the drill press. these holes don't have to be nearly as accurate because the disk locates off the center hub of the axle and not the bolt holes...i believe. (even if it doesn't this method should get you close enough)

I should note that this truck is not going to be used as a truck but just a cruiser to be taken to la from bakersfield to car shows once to twice a month

ECI has the same setup, I used it on a customers truck and found that it is not all that effective.

It will get you past a nhra safety inspection though.

As was stated before, I'd get the axles drilled. I hate wheel adapters.

Later, mikey
