yes it will work if ya go 5 to 8 lug with the D44 1/2 ton knuckle

but you cant go 8 to 5 lug on a flat top 3/4 ton D44 knuckle

If it 1/2 to 3/4 ton it has to be 76 or newer on both the earler nuckles were 6 stud where the spindle bolts and after 76 they were 5 stud. Leadmic

Yes, you can do it. But why not find some knuckles (flattops) and do histeer while you are building it the first time?
I've got the 3/4 ton D44 8 lug knuckle here . It's drilled, tapped and primed .

I needed a knuckle for a 1/2 ton five lug. My calipers won't mount onto this unless I cut it. I'd much rather sell it to someone than screw it up ....and just drill and tap a 1/2 ton piece instead.

Hit me via PM if interested.
