Street able dually??

Just bought an 07 f350 dually a couple of months ago... Doesn't look like I'll be using it as much as i thought, so I was thinking of keeping it cause I got a good deal on it and nothing major is wrong with it. How street able are duallys compared to srw trucks.. Not expecting to break records but do I have to get a different truck so I can play. 2 trucks: 1 dually, 1 srw, same exact setup, how much faster would the srw be??

Thanks

I think he means a pavement play toy.
And from what I can tell, u will get better grip from a modded dually than u would from a single wheel axle. But they are heavier. Plus they look bad azz lowered a bit

I drive my CCLB DRW TowBoss daily. As a Hot Rod, the DRW does have the extra wieght, but that is offset a bit by lower gears (Most DRWs were 4.10s [TowBoss 4.30s], SRWs 3.73s - for the years of the 6.0L).

I break the rear end loose pretty easily, where I may not be able to take some of the parking spots, I can still pull just about anything when I need to. And do so with much more confidence.

I have a dodge shadow turbo thats quicker than the truck and gets 20mpg, but I'd drive it every day...
