The rear wheel studs were 11/16-16 while the front was 1/2-20. Making all 5/8-18 was a major bitch. I ended up having custom 5/8 lugs made by summers brothers for the rear. The front got desolate motorsports 5/8. I drilled out the front to fit the larger stud.
Here is a 4th of july update! Not that the 4th matters as every day is independence day. Ill be away for a while on orders so the build will be slow. Recently got wheels and glass mounted. A few aspects are only part done, need to buckle down and finish 1 thing at a time.

Trying to replace 5/8-18 lug with 1/2-20.
Hubs came with rear end. But replacing wheel studs and cannot find anything that works for weeks.

@Travisfab i knocked out that rivit and it clears entire travel now.
@partybarge_pilot party @AZFR8TRAIN i kept it for now as i have seen a ton of 1450 rangers with it plus it makes for a good support for fuel cell. I am still ponder oj g removing entirely.
