no you wont be, you said axle with without rim tire width is 79 1/2, well a fullsixe d44/60 is 66". Im at 84 which is 18 wider than the axle alone and thats with 8" rims. Throw on 10 rims and 16" tires (im on 12.5 wides) and your over 90, prolly close to 100. Have fun finding a trailer.

Oh a rear steer setup? Well thats just fancy!! You'll be the only one in the group with rear steer!
I'd start a project calendar cauz the logistics for this swap is probably going to be huge and overwhelming to keep track of.
