  1. Thanks allbizz49 and I think I'm going to have at least a 2 1/2" spacer on each side to bring the tires out to where they need to be so what do you think?
  2. Ok so I'm a little confused here so the picture with the 2 lugs the smaller one is the ones that came off of the '53 and the taller black one is what was being used on the ranger rear end so when I add the spacers to bring out my rims and tires I will have to get lugs like these chrome ones like in the other picture am i correct that will hold together correct?
  3. Mackthefinger so these are the rims and tires off my '53 on the ranger rear end mocked up just to verify it will work so I know I will definitely need to add the spacers to bring the rims and tires out but so far seems to be lining up ok I think but I'm no expert dont mind the cancer above the tire lol
  4. Plymouthy meaning what please as to the fit part?
  5. Thanks plymouthy and allbiz49 and as for the wheels fiting on the ranger end I put them on and it's a perfect fit probably going to add the spacers as the ranger end is shorter than my '53 correct

  11. Ok gentlemen let me do it this way so it can probably be more understood as to what I got myself into here and what you can tell me would be my best option please so the pictures included are of my rearend I could not get one side of the drum off as you can see please no rude comments I k bj ow I messed up in the picture and this is what it has come down to trying to grind that hub off and not mess up that spindle to save rearend but I cat find no drums for it they are the 11" x 2" so I was told that my other option would be a bad cheaper maybe to do a rearend swap is the reason for the inquir
