99-04 10.5 Sterling, but your DRW is probably 4.10 and most 10.5's are 3.73 so if you're 4x4, plan on re-gearing one of the diffs. Your other option is some conversion wheels.

I'm curious, why are you converting to a SRW configuration in the first place?

You don't need to change the rear end . Put 05 plus wheels on it with 2" bolt on spacers up front ( after you remove the front factory spacer) . The newer wheels work perfect . There is a guy one here who did it . Can't remember who though .

i havent started the conversion yet and got the bed from work so i dont have anything invested yet. But as far as the newer wheels, i am curious on the rear wheels. If i change them to a 05-07 that will work and not look stupid with a srw bed? And the reason i am wanting to do this is because i am tired of crappy traction offroad even with the mud tires.

well with the four tires in the rear they dont dig as well . They just sit on top and spin. I have owned both single and dual rear wheel trucks and I think others would agree. Dont get me wrong i love my dually just tired of worrying about gettin buried.

Really ? Maybe it's the tires you have . My dually has Goodyear Duratracs and it is unstoppable in the mud . My old 2 wd dually got stuck everywhere but none of my 4x's have ever had an issue especially this one .

The 05 plus wheels have more back spacing and look perfect on the dually rear end . There is a guy on here with a white cc drw that he converted to srw and he put newer wheels on it . It looked good . Been about a year since I saw his posts and I can't remember who it was .
