By off road do you mean 4x4? It is my understanding (and Lord knows I could be wrong) but Ford did not make a factory 4x4 OBS dually. If you find one, someone else has converted the dually to 4x4. I was told this by someone way more knowledgeable about these trucks than I am.

No, Ford did not build a obs 4x4 dually. There where a couple of company's that did conversions, Higley and Centurion with Centurion being more popular. My son and I built one for him a year or so ago using a 95 F-350 2x4 crew cab dually and a 97 F-350 4x4 frame. He is often offered big bucks for it.

@1Dieselman

@White95f250

they did the conversion and put a v12 engine in the truck??? didnt know ford made a v12 engine, i know of a v10 triton engine though, if ford did make a v12 that would be awesome to put in it, thought about making it an 8 liter v8 and straight piping it, is it stret legal to have a 12 liter v12? or something like that?

Neither one of those companies are in business. We used the body, engine, wiring, rear axle and rear suspension from the 95 2x4 dually and the frame, front axle, front suspension, drive shafts, and transfer case from the 97 4x4 that came with a 460. We found a E4od 4x4 trans from behind a powerstroke and a set of centurion front wheel spacers to finish it off.

He is referring to a 12 valve Cummins engine

Yes 12 valve Cummins.

Every person i've talked to went out and got a donor truck or two and swapped everything over.

I built mine. I started with a 4X4 Crew Cab F350 and converted it to dually. I put the rear from a 2X4 in and found a dually bed. Then I converted my D60 up front to dually by swapping out the hubs. The hardest part of the whole project was finding a decent dually bed.
