Daully conversion

Looks like alldiesels is getting that 90' cummins. What would it take to make that 2wd a daully? Whats a good cheap conversion kit? And do the little fenders bolt on to a factory bed, and where can he get some of those cheap?

Needs an axle, and any body shop can get the fenders.

no i meant for the actual duals, i thought there was a bolt on kit, i didnt think you needed a whole new axle, and dont you have to space your fronts as well?

You would have to space your fronts, and wether or not you can dual the back depends on the axle in the truck. You can bolt the spacers on and add duals, but it may look a little wonky...

I would think that you would have to cut the fenders out also to clear the outside tire, I could be wrong though.

You might have to put longer studs on the rear axle to be able to run both rims, but all the 1st gens had Dana 70's, 2500 and 3500 automatic or manual. The fenders would have to mounted on the box along with the box seals, no fender trimming required. I have also seen dually's run 2500 rims on the front axle, I guess it would be up to the installer.:smoke: :smoke:
