Will 5 lug hubs/rotors fit 8 lug spindles?

I'm looking at using 3/4 ton Chevy knuckles on my TTB. This will get me the ability to run a larger rotor, and caliper. But I want to KEEP the 5 lug pattern. Then use Dodge 1500 rotors which are as big as the 3/4 ton rotors but with a 5 lug pattern.

So a Dana 44 TTB, Chevy 3/4 ton knuckles, spindles, and calipers, Dodge Rotors, and Ford hubs/bearings.

A more simple way of getting the info I need.

For sake of discussion lets ignore the logic of why I would do this, and lets also ignore brake fitment issues.

If I install a GM 10 bolt from a 3/4 Chevy, will the Ford hubs/rotors fit on the chevy spindle?

Dude, you are way fucked up here. The dodge 5 lug pattern is smaller than the ford for starters, and the... oh look never mind, NO, that shit won't work. You need to research and fully think things through before you start asking questions. You want bigger brakes and a 5 lug pattern? Look for brake upgrades for your truck! You can also search AXLE SWAPS for your truck. or SAS, using a High Pinion dana 44 from a Bronco or F-150 1979 or before. You do not want anything chevy EVER put under a truck except for MAYBE a 14 bolt rear axle.
Also you need to list all specs on your truck when you start a thread.
Dodge 5x5.5 bolt pattern rotors are the same bolt pattern.
SAS stuff is everywhere. It would be pretty hard to NOT know about that.
I don't want to swap axles.
FWIW the Dodge rotor, 3/4 ton spindle/knuckle, and 3/4 ton twin piston caliper has already been done on a solid Dana 44. I want to do it to a TTB.

YOU need to KNOW the answer before you pop off about a question being stupid. Your entire answer is full of non sense. If you don't know the answer please move on. Thank you and have a nice day.

Will a TTB 6 bolt spindle bolt to another 6 bolt knuckle?
If so the best bet is to use the 3/4 ton Chevy knuckles, TTB spindles and Ford hubs/bearings.

Autozone lists the outer bearings for a 79 3/4 ton Chevy as the same part number as a 88 Bronco. The Inners are different however.

Guys who swap 10.25's into there trucks use Chevy 10 bolt 3/4 ton knuckles to convert the TTB to 8 lug. That's the only way to do it.

01/02 era 1500 Dodge trucks are using the same pattern as a Ford So that takes care of the Rotor (for the most part-there is more to it than that)

I want the big brakes of the 3/4 ton with the 5 bolt pattern. If the 6 bolt spindles on the TTB will bolt onto the 10 bolt knuckle then I'll be mostly all set. I'll check at a PnP tomorrow.

Thanks for the help.
