Re: make it a dually

I don't see why you couldn't do it. I would think that it would be as easy as a rear axle swap. Take the one you have now, off. Go to a Yard, and find a rear axle from a dually, I would be ready to fork over a pretty heavfy wallet load for it. You will probably want to narrow it a little, however maybe not, that would depend on how far you want this hanging out there. Once you get it mounted in there you would have to tackle the breaks, and the driveshaft. The Ujoint on the bigger axle will probably be bigger than the one you took off. You will need a new Yoke for the rear of your Tcase. You may find that you would need a new proportining valve for the new rear breaks. You would probably need to trim the fenders if yo don't lift also.

Re: make it a dually

Anything can be done... just need time & pressure (and of course engineering)

Where you at?
I have a D70 'dually' axle if you are interested.

Re: make it a dually

J.C. Whitney parts has a dually adapter that is 50-state legal, and is designed to work with factory wheels. You'll need two more wheels (with tires) that match your current ones in back. You'll also need to fabricate a set of dually fenders, or your truck won't be road legal.

Re: make it a dually

you could try taking an old stepside bed and cut the fenders out and put them on yours. just a thought.
