axle width: srw vs. drw

I know the drums are bigger but please enlighten me on how much wider/narrow these axles are. I planned on converting my f250 to a drw pretty soon, i just dont want anything looking out of proportion. I read somewhere that a guy just mounted the dually wheels together for the rear and put the dually hubs on the front, does that sound correct?

Re: axle width: srw vs. drw

A DRW pick-up axle is 6" wider than a SRW pick-up axle.

And you cant just put dually rims on the rear of a pickup, they will hit the springs. You either need adapers/spacers or a dually pick-up axle.
For the front, yes. Just Take off the SRW hubs and put on DRW hubs

Can you run SRW on a DRW axle? or would they be too far out past the fenders?

Do you mean take the duals off of a dually pick up and put on a single REGULAR(non-dually) wheel and tire in their place?

YES. The tires will still be tucked under the dually fender quite far

No, I was asking if i put a dually pickup (not C&C) rear axle under my SRW f350 and ran my singles. This would only happen if i got a complete dually reat with the springs and all.

They would be 3" further out than they are now

Re: axle width: srw vs. drw

Off topic but not worthy of a new thread -

Can 2wd DRW hubs (front) be bolted up to a (front) Dana 60 from a SRW truck? Example - taking a 2wd F350 dually and swapping in the Dana 60 (w/RSK) from a F350 SRW.

No. the dually hub on a 2wd is part of the rotor and wheel bearing assem.

You need 4wd dually adapters from a c-n-n or aftermarket spacers

Re: axle width: srw vs. drw

Are these worth buying new or looking for a used set?
