Looking for some help on this, this may sound dumb but id like to convert my DRW to SRW in my 07 F350, for the rear do i need to change the axle and bed.... or do i just need to replace the bed? if its only the bed what do i have to do with the rear axle? I have heard on the front that i need to remove the adapters? Please help out with any info you can provide me its an idea right now but it matters how much work i gotta put into this to do it.

I believe that dually has an 8x200 bolt pattern. I know SRW trucks have 8x170. I don't know if there are any 8x200 SRW wheels out there. If not, you're going to have to change a bunch of stuff to get to SRW.

As far as the bed goes, you should be able to remove the dually flares and be done.

I believe once you take off your dually spacers/hubs your bolt pattern is 8x170, not certain though.

This makes me wonder if t can use your dually spacers so I can run 17in wheels on my dually. Ill have to look into this
You can either find a new bed or take off the dually fenders. If you remove the fenders, you'll have to take it to a shop to have some work done. I believe you will also need some type of fender flare cause they hack up the bed at the factory.
