duallies vs. singles

i was wondering? what is the difference on a 1 ton single axle vs. 1 ton dually axle. is the difference in the rims alone or are the axles, hubs, etc different??? i was wondering if i could make my single axle a dually???? what other differences in the truck are there? is the front axle any different? of course it has fender flairs on the rear. thanks for the help.

Re: duallies vs. singles

The front axle has a different hub assembly. If you have a dana 60 front I have a set of dually hubs that I would trade you if you picked up the shipping. The difference is that the dually front hub sticks out alot further to allow it to run bud wheels.

As for the rear, the hubs are also different, dually hubs are like $350 a piece. You can probably find them in a junk yard cheaper. You can also buy aftermarket spaces to convert to duals. Or you might find a complete dually rear cheaper than converting yours.
