8x6.5 to 5x5.5 wheel adapter

I need to put a cut down D60 on a CJ5. Rims I have are 5x5.5. D60 is 8x6.5. Want to keep the 5x5.5. D60 is cut down so I'd have to get custom axles and that's a bit spendy. Can't find anyone locally that redrills axles.

Anybody got any idea where I can get an adapter?

Any other suggestions I can't think of??

Is it a fullfloater? If so, you just need a hub with 5x5.5....that itself may get spendy.

I say convert the front to 8-lug and go with it. Otherwise you're going to be kinda hosed as I don't see any way of having overlapping 5x5.5 and 8x6.5 patterns.

Well damn.

Ok so any suggestions on an 8x6.5 front axle or anyway I can swap parts to get 8x6.5 on something like a NT D44?

well if you have a 44 already I would just go out and get the knuckle out from a late 70's F250. Just go to the bone yard and pick the stuff up on the cheap.

check this site out. he has how to convert to a (5 on 5.5) or (8 on 6.5) and even 6 lug.

click on the high steer link and what you are looking for is about 3/4 down the page.


good luck
