Dually Conversion

I have been thinking about getting rid of my truck and buying a dually for towing. One of the guys at work gave me the idea of just doing a dually conversion on mine which I never considered before. How much am I going to have to change other then the rear axle, gears, and the bed. I work at Ford and have all access to the parts I need I just need to figure out what exactly I need to get. And has anyone else done this??

Just a rear axle, a new bed or cut yours up, and the new front hub parts to covert your d60.

Its pretty simple and straight forward actually. Might be missing something tho.

I would think it would be pretty simple. You could probably add the fenders instead of getting a new bed. I don't think you would have to change the rear axle, and all you would need is the dually wheel adapter for the front. And of course the wheels.

You defiantly want to swap the rear axle. A Dana 80 vs using your 10.5 with spacers. Stick with a 99-04 axle as the pattern changed in 05.
