Is a 75' Dodge Ramcharger d44 different from others (currently full time 203). i havea 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern that i have contraversy on. i want to make it a 5 on 5.5? lug pattern. some say just get new ends from the knuckles out and i will be able to put locking hubs on it. i have heard that i will need to drill the rotors out. how much of a pain is that? i am wanting to stay as cheap and easy as posible. thanx for the info from 'ontherocks' and others thus far.

Can you get a picture of your current hubs? Must be a unit bering setup but it being 5x4.5 is odd...
You're sure this is a D44 right? You might try selling it and buying a Ford D44, hubs would be right plus you get high pinion.

You can do the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern on the dodge with later Dodge stuff or Ford stuff --- I have a dodge axle that I believe has all the large bolt pattern stuff on it I will check tommorow....

Dodge used the 5 on 4.5 on the full time splined front hubs that used the big nut on the end of the axle --- early stuff.....

The 5x4.5 dodges used different bearings if memory serves correctly and they are smaller than the original. I have Chads old axles sitting in my front yard right now I am sure he would sell you all the parts way cheap if you wanted them

just saw this................


Yup I got all the parts you need. The older ones did have smaller bearings, but if ya just take everything from the knuckle out, you will be good to go. I have the rear axle too.

My front is missing the drivers side front shaft, and the rear doesnt have shafts, but make me a offer.....I will prolly take it!!!
