The standard DRW rear end is 4" wider than the SRW rear, and the cab and chassis is narrower than the SRW, so no the DRW ends are not the same. The C&C is considerably narrower.

Just out of curiosity why are the C & C narrower? is the frame different too?

The SRW is the narrowest axle. The C&C is about 6" wider.

The DRW is only 4" wider than the SRW axle. The C & C is narrower than the SRW to fit all of the different bed attachments that you can get. I was looking at doing a DRW to SRW swap and did a ton of research and measurements on all 3 axles.

I think you better do a little more home work. A dually rim has around 8" back space when its mounted as a inner dual. A stock SWR wheel has about a 4" back space. A SRW tire mounts around 1 to 2" from the tire touching a spring.

With a dual rim on a SRW axle you need at least 1" of spacers to keep the inner duall off the springs.

i finally got the truck it is a cab chassis and measurement on the rear axle is 49 inches inside drum to inside drum. i then measured my friends quad cab dually and that rear measures 54 inches wide from inside drum to inside drum. i have not had a chance to measure my SRW truck....
