dually to single conversion

Anybody know how much of the bed is chopped out for the dually fenders? Will a set of bushwhackers cover the opening providing I weld the bolt holes up?

Basically, I am looking to convert a dually to a single for various reasons and don't want to shell out 2500 for a bed. Lastly, what's the offset like with the '05 and up wheels on an '04 truck? I found a decent deal on some 20x10 with 33-13.50 tires. I heard they will stick way out though.

Hey guys!!! Going from drw to srw was easy. Remove bed, add srw bed, pull front drw spacers, add goeske sPacers and run +05 wheels. Done. Even got to keep the d80.

Now, the 2008 front axle conversion and the cool overs and four link front and rear... That I ran into a huge number of issues... Still trying to sort it all out.

Lessons learned though...

Can you post pics? I really wanna convert my truck over to SRW and if I could do it with out swapping rear ends what would be great.. I'm lowering my truck so I'm curious as to how at the wheels would stick out in the back because I'm wanting the wheels to be flush
