Google arrowcraft, they made most the dually conversions back then on the 4x4's, you could do the bed pretty easily by finding yourself a dually bed for that model.

You need front spacers, or dually hubs, 6 dually wheels/tires, rear dually axle, then fenders.

The arrowcraft kit pretty much bolts on, to your stock axle, but you could just find one in the jy pull bed rear axle and hubs, just swap em on and go find rims n tires.

Im going through this trouble on my f350 dumptruck, the rear is a dually but some sicko swapped out the 60 for a Dana 50, I've found my front dually hubs, dually lug nuts. and i think need different rotors. RockAuto shows different front rotors for a dually, the hat is shaped different. But they might possibly work. im gonna try it. and I think the dually rear axle is narrower,

dually rear is wider by a couple inches, unless you are refering to the cab chassis dually rear.

Do you need the front hubs? I have a set of front hubs for a 350 dually that I need to get rid of before I put the axle in my 250

I just did the dually wheels on the front of my dump truck, although all the parts things show that DRW front rotors are different than SRW front rotors are different, I used my original SRW front rotors and used front carrier hubs off a dually, and the special bolts to hold the rotor on, but there are no issues with it. and its way cheaper than arrowcraft spacers. There is a surplus of the factory ones if they havent been scrapped. Half of the dana 60's that everyone swap in their 250's were Duallys and they just put there dana 50 hubs on the front of the dana 60, like spartan said. I bought mine for $40, they were layin in the back of my buddies garage. But for the rear, mine was already a dually. I have 2 1 ton dually rears out of chassis cabs with 4.10 gears. i was lookin to get $150 out of. one has 60k miles the other has 73k.
