we all needed training wheels at one time........i just like to dwell on my child hood.....i was in the same position and i love it,for as little hauling as i do, it is very nice having the nice ride.......besides the back tires havent worn nearly as fast as i expected (76000, still original michelins)
You will typically get 1 MPG less with the dually due to the extra weight, width and an extra set of tires causing rolling resistance. As for taking the fenders off, you will have big holes in the fenders underneath the dually fenders.
Heck if you close, Id trade ya beds all all the gear. Ive always wanted and kinda needed a duely But realy the easiest way is to get a different bed, always looks better and with an old truck like that, there usually a bright spot were the fenders used to be.
