05-07 F350 DRW to SRW Conversions

Hey guys. I cant seem to find a straight answer from anyone on this. Im looking to get a new truck, and Cant seem to find exactly what I want. Ive found a bunch of duallys but hate duallys. Around me they seem to be more plentiful and cheaper. Is there anything different between a DRW and a SRW?? Other then the obvious of the 4 tires in the back. Are the axles in rear the same? I know the fronts just have spacers, but can I just pull the fenders and tires off and install SRW rims on it and have the same spacing as the front??

Any help would be great

The rear differential is differant but I'm not quite sure if you would be able to run standard rims on it.
But if you decide to do it, I'll buy your 99-07 dually fenders!

I'm sure the axle in the back is a little longer in the pick up bodies (shorter on the C&C bodies), which may or may not affect the appearance when you are done. As to axle ratios, there are two ratios available in '05-'07 trucks, the standard 4.10 and the TowBoss package 4.30. The rear axles are rated heavier on the DRW trucks (9,000lbs if memory serves).

The GVWR and GCWR's are heavier, and you'll need to check with your insurance provider and state DOT to determine if the extra registration fees, taxes, and insurance (depending on state / company, some it doesn't matter) is going to make an impact in your decision to make one a conversion.

my 2007 f 350 dually has 4:10 rear gear, 9,000lb rated rear axle and longer than the SRW rear axle. IMO, leave a dually a dually.

Sub'd...I was thinking one day it might be fun to convert mine and run some big mudders on it.

Actually 3.73's are optional equipment, my '05 dually has them. I think I have the window sticker somewhere...

Looks like it has a 11,200# GVWR package.

I wish mine had 3.73s. Running 2500rpm on the highway sucks!

Bump up the tires by 2 sizes see if that helps.

Dont quote me on this because i never have taken my fenders off, but i think the fenders are bolted to tje bed so there will be holes in the shape of a dually fender on the bed when you pull them off
