i think you will need to change the front axle also, as i BELIEVE the axle on a DRW is a lil wider. Not sure but somebody with more knowledge will be along soon

We have done plenty of these back home and all you need to do to the rear is change the wheels. As for the front goes you can run a regular rim on it but it will be sticking out a good bit or you can get a rotor and hub for a single wheel for the front. The rear axle is not worth changing to a single wheel axle. I think they are actually the same axles but have had people do it either way.

What about DRW to SRW? Like say on my van, the studs seem long enough to put dually wheels on. I have also noticed that it looks like a type of "spacer" on the fron of a DRW. Could I put DRW wheels on the read then the DRW "spacer" with the DRW wheel up front and be done with it?
Sorry to get slightly off topic but maybe we'll find someone that wants to do some trading.?

Where are you located? I wanted to swap my SRW setup for a DRW. Both my bed and rear axle are in good condition. I am around Milwaukee, WI. Let me know if you want to swap.

Thanks,

Sean
