My 82 is still the small pattern----5 on 4-1/2"
I think by 85 on up to at least 93 all of them were the same-----5 on 5-1/2"---same as ford truck (but those wheels' center too small for the Dodge) and Jeep
I see you have an 83 in your signiture----pop a hubcap and have a look, if they are different sizes----it WILL be VERY noticable

I'm pretty sure the bolt pattern is 5 on 4 1/2 for short wheel base 2wd trucks, and 5 on 5-1/2 for long wheel base and all 4wd trucks, that is the pattern i have noticed in the d100's, d150's, and RC's that i have seen.

Forgive me Dodgetalk, for I have sinned!

I am now driving a 95 f-150, and the worst part is I let a shop do some work on it!

4x4 is a "W" not a "D". (doodle your sig line says your 97 has a 43re trans, it would be a 42 or 44re as a 43 was never made.)

4X4 started the bigger pattern in 80 or 81; I've heard of some '79s with PART TIME 4WD from the factory with the 5 on 5-1/2. My 81 W 150 had the bigger pattern.
Even B vans were the same way; my buddy used to have an 87; his rear end went bad; we got one out of an 84; worked fine with a swap of the original 87 axles into the 84 housing so he didn't need 2 spares.

sorry; they will be prying my "old" truck from my cold, dead, fingers!
the new ones make me want to

Actually, according to the email that Chrysler sent me with a list of the options on my truck, it has the 46RE transmission. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, I'll change my sig.
