Dually to single wheel conversion

Looking to buy a 99 f350 cc dually 4x4 6 speed. I like everything about it but the dually. I do not need or want a dually.

Can I convert it to srw by removing rear dual wheels and installing factory wheels? I've read through out here that the axle maybe wider on a dually. Also what is the wheel pattern on a dually? Is it 8x170mm? Then could I put on a set of bushwacker flares to cover up the cutting of the wheel wells?

The DRW axle housing may be a bit narrower than the SRW, but that's speculation. If it is, you can correct it with a spacer, but be careful about who's spacer you buy, you don't want to skimp on quality for something like that.

Getting the spacers off the front axle might be a challenge without the proper tools.

Also, the brake proportioning valve is likely different, sending more pressure to the rear than a SRW. You may find that the SRW conversion tends to lock the rear quicker in a panic stop.

I went and measured it today. Ends up the dually axle is about 1.5 inches narrower per side compared to the single wheel. I didn't like the truck so my search will continue for another

If I were in the market for another Powerstroke, I'd keep with the 05-07 model years, which have the latest updates to the 6.0. Assuming Blackstone analysis of the engine oil and transmission fluid was good, and a diagnostics check was good, I'd be confident in the purchase.

I de-duallied my 02. You can cover the rear cuts in the rear fenders with flares...I just went out and found another bed.
Pulling the front spacers off was easy. No special tools needed other than a BFH to knock it loose. Bolt spacing stays the same, 8x170.

You will find the rear axle is 1.66 inches wider at each side, so about 3 1/2 inches wider overall.

I am using spacers up front to match everything up with +05 wheels.

I am in the process of putting an 08 axle up front which should match the D80 rear nicely.

Duallys axle is wider. On the front to change either way swap a dually to a single rotor.
