Default Weird F-Superduty rotor question

I picked up a 97 F-Superduty recently for a really good deal. It will be the chassis/powertrain I will be using for my 57 F-800 dually project. I have plans on changing the rear axle for a DRW axle I have and lowering the rear end, possibly bagging. Now my question is, does anyone know if I can simply swap front rotors for 8 lug DRW units? The solid beam axle looks the same as a F350 rwd dually axle. If not, I will just find a 8 lug front beam to put in its place, but would much rather switch the rotors if it's as simple as that.

Thanks

What are your plans for the extra two holes? The F-SD has 10 lug wheels.

If I can swap the rotors out, they would be 8 lug. So I would have an 8 lug dually spacer on the front end. Getting rid of the 10 lug rotor and dually spacer.

I thought the axle is 8 lug with a 10 lug adapter on it . I have 2 of these trucks and I though I have seen people selling the 8 lug to 10 lug wheel adapters from these trucks both of mine are 4wd though

I haven't had a chance to pull the wheel to verify that yet. I have heard the same thing and have also seen rotor/hub solid units like some OBS duallys had. I'm going to take it down to my local tire shop tomorrow and see if this is the case, which I hope it is.
