I have a 2014 Ram 3500. Initially didnít want a dually but they made me an offer I couldnít refuse. Now Iíll never own another truck that isnít a dually. The towing benefits are unbelievable.

If and when I find a totaled 04 Chevy/GMC dually I'm converting my CCSB dirtymax to a shortbed dually I think.

The day we picked her up in Indiana and drove back to Florida..Sunday

The day I put her on my lift and made her sound good..that following Friday!

The first Ceramic Coating...

Her first load and new project for Grandson...


Sorry, but you asked if there was any love for Duallies! I’m leaving the suspension alone on this one as I tow heavy..

2011 F350, 171K miles, really enjoy it, ordered it new. Thinking about trading for a 2019 F350 dually. Tried to duplicate the same picture,,,, just 6 years apart and a new boat. 😎

A project that my son picked up a couple months ago. 1996 Chevy 3500 4x4. 6" lift, 12 valve Cummins swapped and a high pinion Dana 60 front axle swapped. We've been going through the suspension (new bearings, brakes, etc). Hopefully have her done by the end of this month. <br/><br/>Oh......the Cummins is twin turbo making 80 pounds of boost, 500 HP and 800 Ft pounds of torque! ��

Looks like have a lot of rear sag for some reason. Trailer can't be that heavy, can it?

My take..I don't tow that much, so I'm content with single rear tires. Even with a load in the bed. Towing, different story. that's a lot of pulling force on a single tire. Less resistance to sway with a single tire. No safety if you have a flat with a single tire.

I drive around town a lot, and often empty. Dual rear tires wear more in tight turns. It's easier to let the air out of singles so they wear and ride better.

I see lots of 5th wheel campers and single wheels. Frankly, kinda scares me.

No not really but it's also not light either I also have icon leveling springs in the front so might sit a little lower in the back with a load I'm probably gonna do air bags I never changed to the 350 leaf springs when I did the dually conversion.

Early 99 f350, 7.3



06 f350 I stripped and rebuilt with all the components from a 2000 7.3. So pretty much I have an 06 truck with a 7.3

Nice I bet it rides nice now with the suspension out of the 2006 I like the wide track front no they have makes doing U turns a breeze.
