First Question

Since It Is My First Post I Wanted To Make It Count. Last Week I Bought A 97 F350 4x4 Dually Crew Cab With Only 39k Miles. Fist Off How Rare Are This? Specially With The Light Blue Silver Like Mistic Color That Looks Different Depending On The Angle You Look At It (i Love It). Secondly I Also Have A 91 F350 Dually 2wd That Has Aftermrket Wheels. I Tried To Switch Them To My 97 But The Front Dont Work, Do I Have To Buy An Adapter To Put Reverse Offset Wheels In The Front?

Thanks In Advance...................

Welcome to the Forum!

That is a great find. Ford did not offer 4wd duallies except in cab/chassis. Most of the ones you find are single rear wheel trucks that have been converted to a dually. This is probably your case, as it is mine. I had to modify my wheels to make them fit also. I had the Alcoa wheels, but wanted all steel, so i traded with a guy that had a 2wd. Everything worked except the alignment dowels. They seemed to be exactly backwards from what I needed, so I just took a hammer and punch and knocked the dowels out. Keep us updated and we would love to see some pics. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

thanks everyone

i will post up some pics, but i went out there today and looked underneath the truck. honestly it doesnt look like it has ever been tampered with, the bed looks untouched. i sent ford the same question along with my vin# just to verify if i am the only one with a 97 4x4 dualy crew cab truck. i cant get a hold of the guy i bought it from so i can ask him, since he drove it out of the dealership since new.
