We went through this process a few years back, no easy answer. The carrier that you have does not have the correct spindles, nor backer-plates (inner wheel contacts). Possibly a disc brake conversion would allow the inner rim to fit. With all the swapping around of the pieces that we had on hand, we were not able to do the conversion. Finally purchased a short-bus, and used the differential out of it. We were a RWD, and initially used a set of Fred's adapters to bring our front wheels out, until the OEM parts were also sourced for the front end. If you do get this to work, we are sub'd, post lots of pics.....J&J.
