drw to srw info needed

Hey fellas Im.picking up a 99.5 cc f350 4x4 7.3 dually.Im getting a great deal on it & it was a service truck & well maintained but I have no need for the extra wheels Im not gonna be doing much towing&I already have a lifted dodge & any truck I drive gets lifted & I dont wanna pay for the extra tires espically since the smallest I will roll is 35s.
So I would like to know the easiest way to switch from drw to srw?Ill be honest I know.nada about pulling these hubs or spacers etc but I do know from what I read that theres a way to do without swapping out the axle.And Im not worried about the bed as I do bodywork for a living.So what if anything do I need to do to the front wheels & what to do to the reAr without pulling axles.If anybody has a write up Id appreciate it.Thanks in advance
Please excuse any typos or terseness: this email was sent from my mobile and I have clumsy fingers.

Front is easy, unbolt the dually spacers and put a standard wheel on. Done.

Rear, could be as simple as pulling off the duals and putting a standard wheel on, but its my understanding that the rear track width is wider on the dually rears than srw trucks, so the rear tires would stick out more than the front once you remove the dually fenders and the bedside is normal.

I would just get the right axle for the rear if that's the case, running wider tires in the front will look funny when you go to rotate tires lol

All you have to do is measure the rear from hub to hub and measure the front hub to hub. Subtract the front from the rear and divide by 2 and buy that size spacer for the front.

why would you want spacers on front? most trucks the front is already wider than the rear. most likely hos front and rear would track right over eachother now, just might stick out to the edge of the bed in the rear, could be fixed with fender flares.
