DRW to SRW

Looking to buy a f350 7.3l soon but in my area, most are duallys, which I don't want (for traction purposes)

Can I safely take off the outer wheels and replace the fenders and be fine?

i know the axle will stick out a bit, how far will that be?

I wouldn't loose 4x4 function correct?
Would I need a new bed?

Thanks!

I would really like to see stock SRW rims on DRW axles and a SRW bed.

i am talking about removing only the outer wheels, and keeping the inner wheel and tire. I would have DRW rims, on DRW axle.

I don't know much about the layout of these trucks, so I guess the beds are different?

That's what I have right now. It's normal. No one knows unless you look very close. It's the disk brakes that are exposed that gives it away.

So your leaving the inside wheel where it "sucks in" like the fronts do? It's gonna look very funny honestly, and stick in more then the front, how would 1 tire have better traction then 2?

Remove the dually adapters. Get a new bed. You could also run super singles and a wider front tire and not mess with the bed. That would give you better floatation in the sand
