As far as I know,The rotors and lockouts have to be changed.Thats why you can buy dually front ends cheaper.

to convert the dana 60 dual wheel front axle to single wheel application, all you have to do is unbolt the dual wheel spacers from the front hub.

pretty sure that is 2wd only. . .else I doubt you would EVER find the cheaper dually dana 60 front for sale when you could spend a few minutes to unbolt spacers and jack the price up a few hundred bucks

NO NO NO A D60 from a DRW is EXACTLY the same as a D60 from a SRW except for the dually adapters and lug nuts. Done. NOT MY OPINION>>FACT!!! They are cheaper because many people think just like you, that the rears are different when in fact they are the same. Not bashing you, just stating a proven fact. And trying to clear up the misconception

it is the 2 wheel drive that has the different hubs. the 4X4 is nothing more than a D60 with the adapters bolted on.

Centurion Conversion using bolt on adapters. I understand that these can be unbolted and is basically a SRW Dana 60 axle. . .

but I have also seen a number of these for sale, and these are the style I'm referring too when people ask about converting (at least those I have talked too). . .

Which have actual Dually hubs. . .

Though, the above pics are from a BJ Dana 60. . .here is a king pin dana 60 with actual dually hubs. . .

Is it a year split somewhere? If so, where? I only know what I see, and those are what I run into. . .I state neither opinion or fact on this one, just what I have found. . .

Original poster, which one looks like what you have? I guess that answer is the direction you need to take in this matter of conversion

Just unbolt the adapter from the rotor. DONE . YOU NOW HAVE A SRW D60.

As for the cut off of the King pins, the last year is 91 of them 92 and newer is BJ

as you said, this is a Centurian conversion. that did not come from ford like that.

these other pics are the bolt on adapters i was referring to. if you unbolt them and put the long studs in the rotor/hub assembly, you will have a SRW D-60 front axle.

I don't think those are bolt on, they are the actual hub. They are machined inside for press in bearing races and have broached splines for internal hubs. The dually adapter part is actually cast into the front of the hub. the rear part has cast and drilled ears for a rotor to bolt onto. . .If they are like the GM dually hubs it is questionable whether you should support vehicle weight on them

If I'm wrong, let me know. . .I'm humble
