I know this topic has been covered before, but posts are older. I'm curious if anyone has done this recently and has pics. I couldn't find newer post after 2014. I'm considering full axle/bed swap vs keeping rear axle taking-fenders off and getting wheels to fit ( concernedrear brakes/rotors will be exposed with this route). Any information or posts regarding either way would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, made my first posting mistake. I should have posted this under powertrain. I tried finding a way to move it and can't. Sorry for the inconvenience to those who deal with this.
I'm doing H2 wheels with 1.5 spacers up front from a 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 DRW basically to a 2005 Dodge Ram 3500 SRW. Supposedly they line up...with the 1.5 up front, we will see. I want to keep the rear end and axles factory, I already have 35's on the truck, so basically now I'll have two full size spares. It should make rotating the tires easier.

I'm picking up the wheels tomorrow am. Apparently the hummer h2 wheel is a simple router, to bore out the stock hole from 117 to 121.3, about 2 mm all the way around.

I've seen others do this...

If it all works out I'll bore, test fit, send off for black or gold powder coat, and then take it all to tire shop and have it mounted up...

Thanks V- I've recently heard of this way to adapt H2 wheels. Sounds like people have had good luck with them.
