Rear End Question

I have a 2000 F350 4x4 XLT Super Duty 7.3 Power Stroke
My Truck is a single rear wheel. I want to make it a dually rear. Will this rear axel except the factory dual wheels? Is it the same axle width as the dually trucks because I want to use a dually bed.
Thank You.

I believe the axle on the dually is alittle longer and heavier. I know that when I lifted my dually the stock u-bolts were bigger in diameter than the ones in the F-350 lift kit. I had to have a local welding shop make me the right size u-bolts. I don't know if that helps or not.

Does anybody know if I could convert my F350 4x4 7.3 to a dually with the stock single wheel rear axle thats in there now? If so how much narrower would it be than the normal dually rear axle?
