Front Dually to Single Conversion.

I Had some problems finding info on it when I was doing mine. So I snapped some Pics and thought id post em up. As I often see people with the same Questions.

So with the wheel removed.
Pound out the wheel studs in the adapter.
Then remove the adapter from the rotor.
remove the caliper.
pound the Adapter mounting studs out on the rotor with it still installed one at a time.
there is enough room with the caliper removed to do this.
replace the adapter mounting studs (corse thread) in the rotor with the wheel studs from the adapter that you removed first. ( fine thread)
Now you can mount your single style front rims.
I was running 10 inch rims on the front.

It is extremely easy to do. and the truck handles way better with a 12.5 inch tire on a 10 inch rim. Rather than the factory 6 or 7 inch rim. Not to mention the tires wear way better.

i did this and just used the same studs that were in the hub. had to buy new lug nuts anyway so might as well leave it alone. and you're right, handles much better

I know in my 2wd obs, the rotor/hub assy is one piece. if I wanted to go standard i would have to swap hub assy.
