    Let me know if you have trouble finding the right hub caps (the ebay listing I bought from for my16" 8 lug steel rims (16.5" was what was on the truck originally). I might be able to sell you a couple if you can wait to mid September when I return to the barn where they are stored. Tadd [email protected]

    Hi Chris, Sorry for my late response. I used a hole saw kit, identified as capable of cutting metal, from Harbor Freight I'm embarrassed to say, but I know these are available at Home Depot or Lowes as well. Google "hole saw for metal". No secret on identifying the best place to cut the hole, just took a measurement from the center of the hubs to the outside of the raised portions of the steel wheel which hold the hubcaps and then center punched the hubcaps to guide the pilot bit. I heard from one member the idea of using cut tubing to snug up the hole on the warn hubs, but I didn't do that--when I swap my winter wheels out for summer, I find no dirt or corrosion on the painted steel rims underneath the hub caps so I think the cut tubing around the edges is an elegant solution to a non-existent problem, unless you are doing a lot of mudding.

    I made the fuel line from a 60" stick of 5/16" tubing. The clamps are Adel clamps.
