On an 06 that's possible, but being an 01 I'm almost 100% sure that wasn't an option.

It might be cheaper if you are saving the old truck. All you need is a new bed (DRW bed has the wheel openings cut different) and a set of SRW wheels. Pull the spacers on the front axle, bolt SRW wheels on. The rear axle will be ~1.5" wider than the front, but everything should bolt on fine. You could swap the Dana 80 for the 10.5 in the truck you have now, if the gears match. I personally would leave the DRW axle under the back. It's a stronger axle, and its that much less work. Hopefully the DRW has a limited slip in it already. If not... you're going to want one.

What's your RPM at 60 and 70? With stock sized tires and 4.30s, 60 will be ~2,000 RPM. 70 will be ~2,350 RPM. 4.10s will be ~100 RPM less.

I have 4.30s in my 2000. But to be fair, I've never heard of a 7.3 with 4.30s either... Maybe the PO put them in...

thanks for your input guys. kinda decided on sticking with my 01 SRW, bite the bullet on the injectors, and live with the rust for a while. a buddy does backyard body and mechanical work in wv for peanuts so i'll have him do some small dent/rust repairs and then try to find a replacement bed. my good buddy in nj owns a body shop and told me if i got the truck totally prepped he could shoot it for about $1600 as a favor. more money in but will probably help on resale.

if the DRW was just a simple swap, i still probably wouldn't go that route from your responses. just not totally evident that it would do as well as the SRW on super muddy off-road conditions. last thing i want is to have 10K lb of logs on my trailer stuck up to my axles in the middle of nowhere.....literally nowhere. next important investment for me is going to be a real good heavy duty winch.

wish you guys all the best, kind regards,
muskie
