don't think it uses budd wheels. they used the same rims front and rear i think and only used a standard lug nut with maybe a plate over the outside for the lug nut. just my experiences with only a couple older 1 ton trucks

You could get a dually axle, but then you would also have to relocate the shock mounts. DRW axles have the shocks staggered opposite of a SRW axle (example: one axle has left shock forward and right rearward, and the other is the opposite). I learned this the hard way.
