Converting Dually to Single Rear wheel

Has any one here converted a dually to a single rear wheel? Any brand but manly dodge? I'm thinking about doing it to mine for pulling purposes. I can get a lot more wheel speed and hold Rpms longer with one wheel opposed too twp wheels. I don't wanna change the rear but the dually rear with a stock wheel on hangs out the wheel well like 8 inches. Just looking for input and maybe pictures!

Single rear wheel to include the front?

For a split with single rear only, just bolt on with new lug nuts whatever will hold the truck up. I single up for unladen trips with a GMC dually, just alternate so one wheel does not get all the wear and upset the stagger.

To go SRW the front hubs generally need changed, often the lug nuts and 4 or 5 wheel/tires of choice.

I'm thinking a little more permanent . Like remove the dually fenders and get the holes in the fleet side fixed and painted. Just a thought at this point. I wouldn't do it till i had another dually. I just really like driving them! And towing with a dually!

Just unbolt the fenders and put flairs on to cover the chopped out part.

I changed an old Dodge to SRW a while back, they had a sale $25 for what you can carry, I got all the parts - hubs, tires, wheels, rotors and some other stuff for $55.50 tax paid and sold the dually wheels, tires for $600. Used a bicycle tire for fender flair.
