Not on a ford !! Four piston calipers can't grind enough, on a Chevy you can grind and make them fit.

you can with the proper back spacing but it will make the tires stick waaay past the body.

you can buy brackets from blackbird customs to run a chevy 3/4 ton caliper and rotor works welll its what i run never been an issue and my truck stop pretty damn good and im on 44s
