To Dually or Not to Dually

This poll will decide the fate of my truck. I am torn between converting to DRW or not. I'm not doing this to increase towing capabilities or payload. Its all for the look. I have always been a fan of duallys on semi wheels and tires. I owe too much on my truck to sell it and buy a dually and I'm just now getting the trucks issues fixed. So the question is....


Should I convert to a ex cab short bed dually or should I stick with a SRW?

My personal opinion, I think the truck would look disproportionate. But thats just me.

It would be expensive to change the hubs in the front and all that. I would not do it.
