How did you convert this into a 5 lug. Looks really good how far are you on your engine build? Nice build so far man keep us posted. God bless.

The conversion to 5 lug was quite easy. Buy 1990 dakota disc for the front (they are 5 x 4.5) and buy 1990 dakota axles for the rear (8-1/4 27 spline). Job done.

Fitting those wheels on was a different story as the front required a spacer (1/2) and extended lug bolts for the front .578nag.

The motor in it is stock, but parts gathering for a single turbo build. Also acquired is an upgraded lsd unit as well as upgraded axles. This is a budget build as its a beater truck.
