Not sure why he's having this problem in the rear either. Alloys fit fine on Janey's rear before I put the HD flanges on, so maybe his has bigger flanges. I lent Jonathan some thin spacers I have, but that only covers 2 wheels and he has 4 to deal with.

Dave, you don't understand the issue and the solution is not as simple as you think. I used the spacers to clear the flanges. Now that I installed a Salisbury, the studs are too short because there is now a brake drum taking up some of the thread. Driving out the old studs will not fix the issue as they are the same length, new or old. The alloys sometimes do not clear the flanges, so I had to grind some material to clear the side of the flange. The fronts mounted just fine without spacers. I ended up clearancing enough that I didn't need Charles' spacers.

So, I am good now for the trip.

I understand the issue. The issue is that you are a Drama Queen. Put some steelies on that thing and move on

Wish I could join. I'll either be tossing trees into my Brush Bandit or wrenching the Ford in my boat. Not sure which is less satisfying.

Many people will use the hubs off a RRC, but I'm not sure what year the RRC changed designs. There were two hubs on the RRC's; one was shallower than the other. A 1988 will fit for sure, but I don't know the year of the change.

You can also get some disc brake brackets from Rovertracks for cheap.

I am likely still out, pending a child that had to go to the emergency room last night and is still there.

I'm still considering just driving my daily driver out there with my 3 year old for the day.
