I knew this is an older post but Im curious what you came up with. Iím doing exactly the same thing: I bought a dually front axle from a w350 and Im converting to single front wheel. I bought a set of dually front hubs that someone sheared the wheel stud locations off, narrowed the hub slightly on a lathe and is using the thicker rear stud mounting locations for a longer stud that now holds the rotor, the hub, and the wheel. It is beefier than the factory hubs and the track is now slightly wider- which is good because Iím trying to run 3rd gen wheel on this 1st gen crewcab. Prior to this, the 3rd gen wheels hit the balljoints because of the increased offset.
What did you do? Iím in the middle of this and about to mount the axle any day now- my backup plan is to mount a set of Raceline 983 Wheels (17Ēx9) which I happen to have two of, but I was trying to avoid paying retail for two more wheels in the middle of my 1st gen crewcab ctd build...
