changing d44 lug pattern

Is is hard to change lug patters from say, a 8 lug to 5 lug? Im searching for d44 and alot are 6 lug and more, but if I can do it easily by buying different part, then I will have a bigger selection.

Thanks

im no expert but I would say that all you would have to do would be change the hubs.

Between changing the spindles, brakes, and hubs, you can make any D44 any bolt pattern that was available in some stock form.

On the front axle that is all true. On the back axle you would normally have to buy axle shafts which fit your housing and have flanges drilled with the right wheel pattern. There are also spacers you can buy to convert from some wheel patterns to others but I'm not a wheel spacer fan.

converting a 6 or 8 lug 44 to a 5x5.5 jeep pattern is simple.......dodge fronts work great
