Yes, same pattern on the rear. Going to run spacers on the rear to help match the front width.

The front hubs are about 4" wider so you can run dually wheels on the front or rear axles. The rear axle is a SRW axle, so it will need spacers to help match the front width. Going to run stock H1 wheels for the double beadlocks, they have 7" backspacing and the DRW axle helps clear everything.

So your list includes pretty much everything.

Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

Last night a starter and rear slip yoke showed up to the station. I'm on the second half of a 48 hr. shift so maybe tomorrow afternoon I'll get the starter in and fire the motor off for a minute

Put the starter in a tried to turn it over but it turns slow. I think the starter may be bad. Going to take it with me to work and have it tested tomorrow.
