Its actually pretty simple. All you have to do is swap your rear axle out and find a non dually bed and take the spacers off the front wheels.

the dually rear will still work. Its about 2 inchjes wider a side. If you get rims from an 05 up they have just under 2 inches more back spacing. You will then remove the front large spacers and add 2 inch front hubcentric spacers. Then your wheels will be real close in spacing to each other. I have been driving for a year with my dually fenders removed. I put on the flares but still have the holes. Sooner or later i will have that fixed and painted.

It helps if you put what your driving in your sig so people know. I have an OBS so I always think everyone else does b/c most of my time is spent in that forum, but if you have an OBS you cant take the flares off. The section behind the flare is cut out, you would have to find a new bed, or have giant wholes above your wheel well lol

the large holes will be covered by regular not radical flares. There will still be lot of mounting holes. At least on my 01.
