Ive seen hubs that bolt on to the existing axle and just has the ability for another wheel. Dont know how strong they are though. They used the standard lug bolts to hold the hub onto the truck. Im pretty sure this would be for looks. I wouldnt be comfortable putting more weight on my axle just with this fix

There's a whole lot more to it than that! The entire 3rd member is different, you need front spacers, not to mention the rear spacers, drilling out the box sides for the fenders. It would be BEST to just buy one! You could do all the crap to it and then not have it track correctly, then you're going to just burn through tires.

yah i agree... its gonna be a pain in the rear to do it... and the rear end on a dually is a dana 80 springs will have to be changed to the 350 kind with new U bolts to go around the wider Dana 80..... unless you can find a wrecked 350 DRW and take apart the whole rear end i dont think it would be worth it.... also even if you do convert the rear end to a DRW your still running a 250 legally so your still confined to hauling those weights....

after some google search investigation...i agree, to do it right u should swap in the dana 80 rear,dually fender flares, and prob modify the frt somehow for the skinny front tire/rim that duallys got..good call 7malards
