You need a D80 out of a dually or an adapter.

They also have complete kits:

you need,

Front spacers - these bolt onto your existing hub, allows you to run the heavily offset dually wheel

Dana 80 rear - is 4 inches wider then a srw rear end

dually wheels

and a bed or a flat bed

if your interested I have the front spacers for sale that were taken off my dually when i went to srw. I also have a set of 6 black dually wheels but i think it would be too much to ship.

yea i have the front spacers already and all the rims. if the dually d80 is 4in wider than why would it be a problem to run 2in spacers on each side of the rear axle?

probably work. might just need to get longer studs. From a spec standpoint, you will be able to have more load on a d80 then you would a 70. but from an aesthetics standpoint, im sure spacers would make the wheels work.

im not doing a dually wheel conversion for weight. im doing it for 2 reasons. 1 being i think flatbeds look better on duallys and 2 i think im gunu do a 19.5 or 22.5 truck rim conversion.

i have a lathe and mill so im prolly gunu make rear spacers. thats why i wanted to know if they would work. prolly just make a 2 inch thick 8 to 10 lug adapter. and 4 inch 8 to 10 lug adapter too.

Is there a difference in a cab and chassis axle vs a DANA 80 dually axle?

Did either of these come with a 4.10 ratio from the factory?

Thanks!

Someone took Mega Cab dually fenders and converted a 2500 QCSB into a 3500 QCSB Dually. Looks pretty cool but wierd as a Sec Gen.

I'm doing the same thing right now. I'm converting a 98 12v 5 speed ext. cab truck into a 1 ton dump. I'm having trouble getting a set of front dually adapters. I been looking all around. Anyone has any, let me know.

Anyone have pics of drw on a 2500? I have a camper/tow package with a 3500 c&c width d80. I could technically benefit from a drw setup and the only difference is I have the narrow d80. I just wanted to find some pics of how far the drw sticks out on the 2500 box. I don't know what fender flares would work best, a 2" or 4" pocket bolt flare of if I'd need to go all out for the megacab flares. Just wondering if a drw swap would be too much of a Frankenstein or if it could work on an srw width.
