Isn't it funny that it links you back here to Ramcharger Central?Dorman responded
Looking at the stock measurements for the front wheel stud 4x4 model truck we would not have anything longer than what is stock for the truck. It has an offset knurl and a .625 knurl call out which the stock replacement would be the longest we offer at 2.25”.
1/2-20 Serrated Wheel Stud - .625 In. Knurl, 2-1/4 In. Lengthwww.dormanproducts.com
While looking for more info online, Google lead me back to RCC thread from 2010 where @Elwenil solved the mystery.
So, I installed 3/4 ton axles in my 84 R/C out of a 77 P/U. Dana 60 rear and 44 front. These are the full time axles (it was what I had ::) and it gave me 4:11 gears). Anyway, The wheel studs in them are not long enough for the aftermarket aluminum wheels I have. I have searched all the parts...www.ramchargercentral.com
I'd only like to confirm the length of front factory studs. 1 15/16"?
Watching your thread made me try it. After a few fails I found the right chrome paint marker for the job. The key IMO is the right shape of the ending - flat 3-4mm.I have done the same last winter and it also looks much better. I have used a silver pen, may using liquid silver color and a small paint roller had been better an easier. OK, I'm getting more experience day by day abd bow I have a small paint roller to bring the rust protection to the right place
Nice work!So my center caps are finished...
