no such thing unless you spend a lot of money for custom parts and shafts.

Run some newer dodge 1/2 ton wheels (5x5.5" bolt pattern), they should have the higher backspacing and are available in the 17" variety.

Why not just swap in a Full Floater 8 lug from a truck - your choice - for a stronger axle with much better pinion angle?

Or run a 72-down 9" truck housing. Sounds like you have something from the 80's?

He is picking up a D44 and 9in for a good price, but being 68' wide, he wants to run H2s or something similar to keep the tire under the body/flares.

Well, a good price isn't really a good price if its going to cost him more to make it work.

When i got my 9" moser shafts i ordered them and spool in a kit and the whole thing was 550.00 to my house. All you have to do call them and they will build what ever you want.
