Unimog 8 on 6.5" Conversion Kit

Is there anyone out there selling just the parts needed to move to the Chevy bolt pattern from stock Unimog? I already have an existing disk brake conversion and would like to switch over to a more common pattern. I'm having trouble finding anything that is just the pattern conversion. Thanks in advance.

What are you running for a disk conversion on the six lug mog stuff?

I'm not sure of all the details since the guy did it before I acquired the axles but I run F-250 calipers and the disks are four-piston. I wish the guy just did the conversion while he was there.

Do you have any pics of what you have now? I think there are a few on here doing the 8 lug conversion.

We may do another run of wheel adaptors/spacers. They are two inches thick.

Here is a pic

I'd be interested. Do the six-lug nuts set into the spacer?

Yes they do...you may have to run longer studs though on spacers like these. They would run about $150ea

Do you have any photos of them on a rig? Or anything else you can send me about them? I am definitely interested but with my current setup I am already crazy wide and am wondering if 2" per side is too much.

I ran them years ago on mogs full width and hummer wheels so I had massive backspacing. The only other real alternative would either be custom wheel, wheel centers or 8 lug conversions. I will hunt for pics.

PM works from here on out if you're alright with it. I have the same setup too. I'd be interested in four.

Who wants a set $500 a set we will build them if we get enough folks ready. We get a call every 5 months on these. They are too handy for folks running 404s.

Have you made a run of those adapters lately?
