5 on 5.5 hub conversion?

Does anyone make a hub conversion for the front 44? Might be selling the TJ and keeping the Walkers and Krawlers for the next jeep. Rear would be easy, but haven't looked much at the JKs front axle.

Solid Axle is working on one, I dont know if it is available yet, but it looks like a good product. You could also get some conversion wheel spacers.

Those of you that think you know everything really annoy those of us that do!

The Spyntec will convert the front hubs to locking hubs and coverts to 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern. The kit is about $1400 but is fairly simple based on what I've seen and heard from someone that has done it. I'm considering doing this in the summer.

You would still have to convert the rear, but that can be done with axle shafts.
