Gen II Dakota front brake - 6 to 5 lug?
I have an '04 Dakota that will be donating it's chassis to a '52 Studebaker truck body. I would like to convert the brakes to 5 lug due to the increase in wheel choices. I have read all of your posted brake compatibilities, but it deals with the earlier Dakotas. Is there a direct parts swap with earlier 5 lug brakes to the Gen II Dakota? I will be changing out the entire rear end, so that will be easy to match a 5 lug pattern to what I end up with on the front. Thanks!
That page has all the Dakota based information including brake interchanges
Nothing past 1996 is convertible to five lug rotors without involving a machinist and custom axles.
Thanks for the information. Looks like I will be heading to the local machine shop when I get to that point. I ran a metal fabrication shop for 24 years before I retired, so it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out. I wanted to explore the "bolt on swap" possibility first.
I decided to take a slightly different path, and picked up a '94 1st gen. Now to rid of the 2nd gen!
