I have a 2002 3500 4x4 that I pulled the box off to put my welding deck on that truck. The dually fenders are in poor shape due to grinding sparks and a deer hit on the drivers side and the inside dually tire tread coming apart on the passenger side and wrecking the flare. The rest of the box and the tailgate are in great shape.
I am looking at a 1996 2500 ext. cab long box 4x4. It is missing the box.
I am hoping to put my dually box on the 3/4 ton single rear wheel 96. I would have to paint the box to match.
When I pull the dually fenders off, is the wheel well the same size as a normal single wheel box? I understand the filler hose is in a different location. Is there any other issues with this installation? I'm going to be painting it, so if there is any rivet holes or other indents, I could fill them before I paint.
Anyone have pics of a dually box with the flares removed?
What you could do is bedliner the rockers from the bottom of the regular fill door, down (it would also cover the single, bigger hole near the back of the bed). If you have another bed, a patch panel would be easy to cut out, and tack weld. With the bedliner, it wouldn't have to be perfect, or painted. Throw some flares on to cover the notch up, and plug-weld the holes that are visible.
As far as I know, all dually beds have the second filler hole cutout. I have been toying with the idea of removing mine, and doing mine like this. Nothing wrong with my bed, and about $600 minimum to get just the bed sides of another bed painted.
