Early 99 dually-single wheel conversion

I recently purchased my first diesel which is an early 99 f350 dually. I really didn't need a dually, but the price was cheap, the truck was nice, and so I bought it anyway. I am pleased with its performance but I would still rather have a single wheel truck. Rather than sell my truck and buy a single wheel I would prefer to just convert it. I realize that the dually axles are different from single wheel, but I was wondering what other stuff i might need or problems I might encounter in the conversion. Any body have any ideas?

That would work great. I was hoping that might get lucky and someone else wanted a dually.

Thanks. I figured the easiest way (and cheapest)to convert to single wheel would be to find someone who wanted a dually that had a single wheel. Justin logue 5 0 was interested but due to minor differences in our needs it didn't quite work out. After considering it I think I'll stay a dually, at Least for now. How ever in discussing different aspects of the conversion with him the subject of my gear ratio came up. I bought my truck used and the previous owner didn't know the ratio. I wasn't worried about it, I was fine with 4.10 or 3.73 which are the only ratios I think F350s were available in. Judging from my fuel mileage and rpms @55 mph im pretty sure I have 4.10. That being said I'm still not sure. Is there some way to tell from the VIN on the door or is there another way?

On the front and or rear chunk there should be a little metal tag held on by one of the bolts. Take it off and it should tell ya.

Thanks. Good thing I put masking tape on that tag when I painted my rear end. I didn't examine it too closely though
