Default full width question

i have been thinking of d44 and 14bolt but i don't really like the look of the tires out past the body. i don't have the money to get custom shafts made to shorten the axle so what i want to know is do they make a wheel with a offset that backs the tire up back to under the wheel well. i don't mind if it's 3-4" out but a whole tire width is a lil crazy for a dd.

If you are set on that axle combo, you can run stock H1 Hummer wheels. These offer a dual bead lock, 8 lug and something like 7" of back spacing. However I'd recommend just finding a set of axles that are narrow from the factory, such as, Early Bronco axles or Toyota axles. The early bronco axles will take the same amount of work to install as the 44 and 14 bolt, the toyotas will take a little more work. What size tires do you plan on running? You can successfully run a 35-36 on a dana 30/8.25.

if your goin for a big boy axles you best bet is to stay away from the 14 bolt unless you want to run 40's its a big axle and is not needed for 37s to 38s. just my .02

Is the front a chevy axle? You would need a new transfer case to run a chevy front.

33's or 35's no need for full width axles. especially with the 14 bolt you will be dragging it everywhere on 33's or 35's
