Ok, long story short... I have a Waggy D44 and a Ford 9" that I just put under my '92 Cherokee. I'm a ******* and didn't realize that the 9" was THAT much wider than the D44. I just eyeballed them and thought they looked close enough. After measuring the 9" is 6" wider than the D44. I am NOT buying new axles, so help me decide what route to go here. This is primarily just a trail rig, but will see light road use to/from the trails.
1 - Just roll with the width difference, which also has me running different bolt patterns, but I found wheels that match. Waggy is 6x5.5 and Ford is 5x5.5. I would just pick up a 2 piece adapter for the spare, so I only have to carry one spare along....
Pick up wheel adapters from this guy http://www.motorsport-tech.com/
Who I've been talking to and said he can make me 2 or 3" adapters that will be hub and wheel centric that will work well and put no extra wear and tear on any other parts.
2 - So, 2" adapters
3 - or 3" adapters
Again... I do not have the money to go in a different direction at this point and I'm too anxious to get the Jeep back on the trails after being down for so long. So, one of these IS happening.
