I thought about that, or welding nuts to the head. That way I could clean up and re-use the carriage bolts.
I thought dually axles were significantly wider than SRW, so spacers would do the opposite of what you'd want if trying to mount SRW wheels.

The donor trucks will be IFS so unless you're going 2WD you'd need more.
