Converting a 99 dually 2wd to SRW 4x4

Does anyone know what would be involved in to convert a 2wd dually to a 4x4 srw?
Has anyone done it?
Im not so sure I like the newer quadcabs. Kinda like my body style. But want to have a 1 ton still.
Any thoughts?

Sell your truck and buy a 2nd gen 4x4 dually. Unless you have a small fortune to burn and a ton of time to invest in a project like that. Probably get a pretty god buck for your truck being from Arizona, home of the rust free dinosaurs.

Converting to SWR is very easy. It's the 4X4 conversion that's a PITA. Personally, I would sell it and get a 2500 4X4. Once you take the duallies off there isn't much difference anyways.

The dually front axle and SRW are the same. A removable spacer is added to allow the dually wheels to be mounted.
