Ram3500???

hello guys,
i have a quick question. im looking into buying a dodge (2500 or 3500) and i am wondering about the 3500's?
i recently saw a 3500 that was a non dually. is this common? is this even true?
i want a dually but i really dont. haha. its just more maintenance and more money.
if anyone has any input on this i would appreciate it. i have been trying to find out if this is true but i have had no luck.

thanks
erik

3500's are available in Dual Rear Wheel and Single Rear Wheel, just like Ford and GM. If you don't REALLY need a Dually, I would suggest not getting one. I bought a dodge Dually back in 2002 cause I really liked it. My truck was one of the best trucks I've ever owned, but it was a pain to park if you had to get in a lot, and I eventually traded it in on a new 2005 F350 single rear wheel.

It would be cheaper to buy, and to operate/maintain.

It just won't handle as well under a heavy load but that can be fixed with a set of 19.5's . . .

few of them look goofy but i think it's they picked the wrong wheels but check them out a few guy's got some killing combos. . .
