I often wondered why no one was doing the 8 lug disc for these trucks. Especially when you see the interest on this website. I'm guessing it's due to the fact the 1/2 tons share the same dimensions with the cars. The 3/4 tons are divided pre-53 and 53-59. Not to mention the SRW 1 ton and DRW 1 tons.
Any way It's good to see some initiative out there.
One of my original ideas was similar to this: POL Disc kit
I figured the same method could be applied to the front.
