I do it with cut-off discs and a grinder. Touch it up with flap wheels and call it good.

You are welcome to do it however you wish, I would not take it out of the driveway. Be forewarned, you can ask the same question 50 different ways and that answer will not change.

Outers are not the same. The 9 had stock outers and the 60 has F-450 outers.

To make it more difficult, to really mess with the builder, and most importantly, no other reason than gearing.

To get 5:38's the only HP 9" option is Tru Hi9 and it's retarded to pay 2500 for a 3rd member that takes 7 quarts of gear oil.
