dually to single rear wheel

First off wasnt sure where to.place this...so.feel.free to.move if needed.
So I bought a 99.5 f350 7.3 psd 4dr cc longbed dually.I am never gonna pull a 5th wheel & since Im lifting the truck & going with bigger wheels & tires I want to.eliminate the outter rear wheels & whatever it takes to make it a non dually without swapping the axle.Anybody done this before?I.plan on doing this soon so if you can help please do.Thanks in advance

No difference between the 3/4 ton and 1-ton axle except the length of possibly the wheel studs, the housing and axles are the same. Other than the flared box side extensions there is really no difference between the two trucks, along with spring pack sets for the different weight capacity.

IIRC The entire rear frame is different on a Ford. I may be wrong but still that hurts the value of a quite valuble truck... Buy the truck u want

I believe you are correct with the spacers and wheels....at least that is how all the older stuff is....just get the backspacing right on the single replacement wheels and it looks good, I've seen 4x4 1-tons done this way with big mud tires, just cant haul a 1-ton load because of the load rating on the single tire.

How much lift do you want and what size tires are you wanting? It's hard to beat the look of a bad ***** lifted fat bottom.......
This guy is running 6" lift 37x12.5x17 with 2" hubcentric spacers to keep the rears from touching.

From what I am understanding your wanting to remove the dually fenders and run a single rear wheel, right? Have you thought about running a wide tire and wheel in the rear to fill the space of the duals?

I guess I don't get lifted full size trucks.. I just had my stock F-150 up in the hills yesterday on one of the trails, and yea I scrubbed a bit, but it did fine. The width and length was the problem.. I can't see a CCLB working well

It's about looks. Most lifted diesel trucks never leave the pavement.

I've never cared for much more than a body lift myself. To each their own though.

You own it so make it yours

I think a fellow will care once you lift in some engine blocks or fender sections then you will care about that lift and not in a good way..
