Dually pickup bed on chassis cab?

Well unfortunately I was rearended a month ago, it caused about $2k of damage to my flatbed and frame damage to the truck insurance totaled it and I bought it back and rather than fixing the flat bed I was thinking about putting a regular bed on to reduce some of weight but the truck is currently at the frame shop just want some advice and opinions on putting a regular bed on a Cab and Chassis

I read on here cab and chassis has like a 2" longer wheelbase . I have a friend that did it to a 2000 550 . I never asked him how much work it was , never really thought about it because at the time I figured just bolt it on . I have since found out that is not the case .

have to get old one off, some are welded on (mine is) then the stock bed you will have to just drill some holes and you shouild be good to go, the frame is a tad longer but the gap at the front of the bed is just gonna be a litle bigger.

bc of the weight of a flatbed and the bed that was on it was built buy a friend of mine so if i went flatbed again we would just fix the original bed, Ive been driving the truck around on a 8th of a tank for last week with the flatbed on it I would be lucky to make it to town on 8th of a tank
