I never had it apart and it has been way too many years since I had wheels off a duelly, don't remember if there was anything wierd about the coining of the wheels so they would bolt together as a pair on the axle. That conical lugnut thing needs to be checked out to make sure it is a viable swap.
Guess I need to take the wheels off anyway just to loosen everything up and learn to change them.
At this point I need a jack that can handle things.
