Dually spacers

Hi guys I converted my truck to dually with the conversion kit spacer. Now i'm wondering if it would be safe to add another spacer between the tires. so it would go Tire/spacer/Tire/spacer/axle\spacer\Tire\spacer\Tire.

yea it will be safe if you use a quality spacer, cheap aluminum spacers on a dually hauling weigh will make you wish you spent the extra money real fast. you have to add one when running oversize tires or else they will rub

you should look into getting dually hubs from a junk yard, and then using the spacer you already have in the middle if its not to big, that way you know the inner tire is good at least

Yea getting dually hubs would actually be the best root. Will those fit right on to the D50 axle? thanks

If your talking on the rear, which i think you are, you can safely run 2 sets of spacers. I will be on my dually project.

My buddy told me that for the rear axle I can not do this. That I would have get the full dually axle and that I can't just put the dully hubs on the regular axle. Can anyone confirm this?

You can put dually hubs on a regular axle, the axles are literally no different than one another, my hubs are for a front axle, as far as rear axles go the dually axle is slightly more narrow than the srw axle is, but basically the same
