1997 F350 Daully swap to Single

I just purchased a 1997 F350 Powerstroke Daully! I am wanting to put a single axle in the back and put a regular 8ft bed on it. I was wondering if anybody on here has done anything like this, and is it hard? Please let me know your info! Thanks!

You are on the right track.

I will assume your dually is 2wd.

You will need a single wheel rear axle
Single wheel bed
Single wheel front hub/rotors
4 single wheel rims

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

Ok, then your truck was converted(Ford did Not make a 4wd dually pickup till99)

So you MAY have bolt on adapters front and back.
All you MAY have to do is get rid of the adapters then bolt single wheels on
And also a single wheel bed

Sorry, the guy said it had leafs springs in the front so I figured it was 4x4, but its not lol. And it has the 5:13 gears in the rear, and he said it only gets about 13mpg, so if I switch it to a single wheel, what gear ratio it the best for speed and mpg ?

I do believe Ford made 4x4 DRW before 99.
