Not to be nosey, but why would you want to go through all that trouble. Let me guess you got a deal on some nice 6 lug wheels.

Noone says you can't run 5 lug in front and 6 in the rear.

Easiest swap would be to pull the rear axles and have them redrilled for the 5 lug.That way they match and it will be way cheaper and faster than tearing into the front end.

I've been wanting to do that actually, wasn't sure if it was possible... Good to know that it is.
