Man, I think I got fucked again! Got the 60's and it looks like the front is from a dually!!!! The WMS is even with the end of the hubs. Sounds like a dually to me! Shit!

It may not be horrible. I was planning on running Hummer rims and re-backspacing them to make up for the extra width (going under an EB). But what about the rear? Do I need to look for a dually rear now (I haven't uncrated the rear yet) to match? Are there problems with running these? Are they stronger/weaker?

Can I change out the rotor/hub on the front and make it into a SRW axle? FUCK!

Yes you can change out the hub and rotor with single wheel stuff or run stock Hummer rims. Either way you arn't that fawked. It is also not that uncommon for people on the wanted board to be looking to trade you SRW for DRW. Do a search there and see.

you got 900 something post and dont know the answer to this question that is asked every day, or dont know how to use the search button. also when you ty to search look at how to convert the dually hubs to SRW hubs. also search for the ultimate dana 60 article, or massive dana 60 article it will tell you how to do it in there and every other piece of information then some on that axle. it will be easier for you to go to SRW width, makes everything easier to swap for in the future if you make changes.

the only differeince is the wheel hub... easily changeable to single wheel

if the rear is a dually it's only 63in wide... dually rear's are hella narrow!
the dually rears I have seen are wider then stock! dually wheels have crazy ass backspacing but the inner wheel has single wheel track width requiring a wide ass rear axle. Cab and chassis trucks have narrower rears however and I'm guessing this is what has you confused

If it were me, I'd keep the dually hubs and run the Hummer rims unchanged. Or swap the dually hubs with someone for SRW hubs. Now that Sixstates has the new SRW hubs for such a decent price the DRW conversion isn't the best option - not cost effective or the safest unless you are a machinest and trailer the rig.
