Hi, Wondering if people have had luck with swapping out the spindles on front or drums rear or newer hub swaps to remove the issues with finding the 6 lug pattern wheel for something modern/able to substitute with to get a rolling chasis yet still keep original diff and front axel beams - cheers

I can't speak to swapping, but modern day commercial big rigs have custom hubs made often enough. Typically it is to change wheel type to mount modern wheel on older trucks or to mount modern brakes so they can actually get parts, heh.

On that route, I would recommend getting in touch with vintage truck groups to find a reputable shop that would be interested in spinning a new set of hubs for you.
