DUALLIE REAR END IS IN

well after 5 complete disasters with the 10.5 rear end in my truck , i finally decided to upgrade , found a 03 duallie rear end , 11.25 , was a direct bolt in , leaf springs , driveshaft , shocks, everything bolted right up, only modifications i have to do is redo my ladders bars to fit this rear end , i really hope this fixes the repeat breaking issues , i will try and get some pics up of the damage to the old one , never seen axle tubes crush like they did on that rear end , like a beer can

the only thing i see is the tires stick out one inch more on each side than they did , but its not a major noticeable difference

sounds sweet the extra width in the rear will help keep the rear tires out of the loose stuff the front just pulled up. Looking forward to pics

I dont think an inch will make a difference on that, but who knows could help.
