Yeah that was me. E-mail sent the. The big mod is the center caps. If you know a good machinist you will be fine and if you are related to one you will be in even better shape. Here's few pics

Thanks a lot! The Dodge 20's have the same lug pattern as the the older trucks, so no problem there. On the front, you need 1/4" placers (to get the biggest tire on, 285/50/20) and on the rear you need to mill 1/16" of the wheel hub (the wheel itself). Then you will need to have some new center caps made (The stock ones will not work) to accommodate the front bearing cap and you will be good to go.
