Default 8 lug to 6 lug

I have a full float 14 bolt rear with disc brakes and 8 lugs. I'd like to change it over to 6 lug to put it under my 1/2 ton and not have to buy new wheels. Anyone know if this is possible and where to get the parts from?

theres a company that make conversion hubs but it would be way cheaper in the long run to simply buy a semi float 14 bolt. they offered a 6 lug version that came in light duty 2500's that were 4x4. it would be a direct bolt in to your truck. it's quite a bit stronger then the 8.5" axle u currently have and can withstand moderate abuse before breaking.

I'm actually running a 12 bolt out of a 70 blazer right now. It's kinda funny looking though because it's not as wide as the old 10 bolt.
