F350 dually pickup bed, Will iy fit on an F450

Got to wondering about this the other day. Will a dually F350 pickup bed fit on an F450? I know there are different wheelbases avail. on F450's, but that could be modified.
I found a nice 06 F450 regular cab, 4x4 flatbed at a good price. However, I really want a pickup bed, as I already have a one ton flatbed.
Has anyone done this swap, or is it even possible at a reasonable price? I do have a nearby source of used Ford dually beds, from several model years.

It will require some work. Wheelbases are different and the frame is narrower on the 450. The good news is it's not impossible, many people have done it.

There will be at least a 4" difference. Pickups are shorter than cab-n-chassis

reg cab long bed pickup 137" WB
reg cab c-n-c 141"

supercab short bed 141.8"
supercab long bed 158"
supercab c-n-c 162"

Crewcab short bed 156.2"
Crewcab long bed 172.4"
crewcab c-n-c 176.4"

So you would have a 4" Bigger gap putting a pickup bed on a cab-n-chassis.
The conversion company that do it, use a filler panel to fill the gap. I also have seen a set of stack used to fill the gap as well.

Also, the frame rails on a C-n-c are 34" wide. A pickup has 36" wide frame rails

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

Well, sound like it can be done, but could get expensive. I will have to do some serious budgeting and think on this a lot.
Thanks,
Jeff
