1999 F250 Dually?

99 diesel

I am thinking this is a conversion? He insists it is a F250 and a dually and his brother in law bought it this way but didn't say if it was bought new.

Why would someone convert a F250 into a dually? I am thinking if I wanted a dually I would buy a F350. Maybe for fuel mileage?

I did a google search (as good as thats worth) and what I gathered was Ford didn't make them from factory but conversion companies converted them? I have never seen a F250 dually but I don't go around looking either.

It's either a conversion or a typo. Get a pic of the door sticker and you will know for sure.

I'm thinking about going to look at it. A F250 DRW Standard transmission sounds interesting. LOL

He assured me it was a F250 with 6 wheels. I may look at it this weekend.

Anything's possible these days. I have seen an early 1990s F-150 dually (with 5-lug 15" rims!) and huge aftermarket flares. I thought it looked like crap, but I guess somebody probably thought it was "cool" to make such a truck by ordering parts from a JC Whitney catalog.

The only thing he did not have was the jeweled "eyebrows" over the headlights and "Winky" the white cat with turn signals in its eyes.


How much you wanna bet his horn played "La Cucaracha" and he had a steering wheel made out of a chain?
