I think you need a new bed also, unless you cut your fender. Be nice to have another dually on here

Has anyone converted from single wheel to dually?
I actually DID do this for / with my old boss. He had a 4wd Ford that he wanted to convert into a dually. It really wasn't that difficult, just time consuming. We ordered the dually fenders, rear and tires, as well as a new gas filler neck. That's all that I can remember off of the top of my head that we needed. Lines and stuff also needed to be replaced. Like I said, it wasn't difficult, just time consuming. I think he was able to order the fenders pre painted since he was still using the factory color, however I'm not 100% sure. It was about 15 or so years ago.
