dana 30 hub converion

I want to convert my 5 bolt hub to a 6 bolt. Can I just buy the 6 bolt hubs that 4 wheel parts sells or do I need to go with warns hub converion?

Either the Warn conv kit or find a set of 6 bolt hubs from a stock CJ.

It's not worth it. Just stud yours and you will be good

What axle do you have? Early D30's (CJ's) had "C's" that accepted D44 knuckles and hubs, allowing 6-lug Jeep outers and locking hubs. The later model D30 is a much different axle. It's very expensive to convert these axles to lock-out hubs and the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern; don't believe you can convert them to 6-lug, though.

Yes it is worth it, the stock 5 bolt hubs on a CJ D30 are plastic and break really easy.

Like I said before.

Either buy the WARN conversion kit or find yourself a set of hubs from roughly a 79' CJ-7 that had the 6 bolt hubs and then buy a set of WARN premium hubs to bolt them too. All the spindles/hubs are the same just bolt and go.

Period.
