I tested my own design just like that one and I passed on it for a few reasons to make major improvements which lead to how my kit is designed.

Did you confirm it can be run with the RCV big bell ?

The pictures you posted are from a standard Dana 60 sized CV, that's why I'm asking.

After the outer knuckle is machined, the uni-ball cup is slid into place before itís welded. At this point you get to choose how far to insert the cup and control how far away it is from the bell.

With or without unit bearings?

5x5.5 D60 hubs exist and many people have converted the 99-04 to use older D60 spindles and hubs so it's theoretically possible.

Yes, easily. I did 6x5.5, but 5 lug is same principal.

99-04 Super Duty Unit Bearings - 5 on 5.5 - 35 SPLINE - Branik Motorsports

Edit, rereading your post, You'd just machine & re-drill the stock 8 lug unit to the 5.5" pattern.

Yes.

1) you can buy new UBs from Spidertrax, currie etc
2) you can machine stock UBs to that pattern
3) you can convert the outers to spindles and find a 5x5.5 hub.

You'll have to adapt the brakes.

I'm building a 609 right now with 5 lug 04 super duty outers. I have asked here a few times and done a bunch a searching but there is NO oem off the shelf rotor that I have found the will work with the unit bearing. As of now my plan is to use the older chevy 3/4 ton calipers with a custom bracket and late 90s dodge ram rotors with the center hole machined to fit the unit bearing.

Toyota has several ~4.25" center bore rotors that work great for the 6 lug app's. May be worth looking into one of them & drilling the 5 lug into it.

so obviously a set of lighter rotors would save weight, but what about just redrilling the stock rotors?

Not enough material to do that. The center bore on the stock rotors is to big

Nuts, could you reporpose the "stock" (dana44 ford) in this case rotors and calipers and make them slip over like shown above?

I looked through the past years of post and didnt find it.

Where did someone find knuckles with the balljoints for ~$70 each new?

The best I got were $100 each on ebay from a ford dealer. They go for about $130 each from rock auto now. Note, these are for the 2013+ knuckles which use bigger rotors and calipers than the 05-12 knuckles. The ford numbers are mef 249/250.

Can someone provide me some specs on the 05-12 knuckles? Putting the 05+ kit on fast forward due to requests. I need:

the OD of the upper and lower holes of the inner C for starters. And if anyone else has a lower ballpoint installed and tightened onto the inner C I'd like the distance from the flat of the inner C to the top of the outer knuckle.

Seems like it would be prudent to swing by a junkyard and buy one for a couple hundred $...

I don't know where you is

I also wouldn't trust making product off of random internet person measurement without having an example in hand.

Digging through. Only reference i found to 6 lug brakes.

Looks like currie offers them in 12.19" or 14". The toyota rotors are 319mm and 338mm which dont convert over to that.

Or can a JHF braket be made to use with a yota caliper and off the shelf rotor?

I have a 6 lug rotor off my old 9.5" rear axle. Can measure it today if needed. Wonder what the new 10.5" tundra rear rotors come out to

Anyone know the difference in distance from BJ/KP centerline to the knuckle face between the KP knuckle and the SD knuckle? Also how much wider the C is?

Trying to figure out how much wider it would make the WMS-WMS if I changed from Reid C's and Welderboy knuckles to all SD parts.

Yup, that was my rig. Sold it last December to fund my shop and next Scout project. I may take you up on that or stop by to look at it if you're around. I'll PM you soon.
