Want to buy dually rear end

Recommended Posts

I want to change my truck from a SRW to a dually.

I'm looking for a dually rear end, prefer 3:55 limited slipp gears,

 and a set of dually wheels.

and 2 hub extensions for the front end.

 

You can call or text me at 253-six8six-298six

thanks!

lets hope that ad is real and has a disc brake conversion as that's a GREAT price.! [by more than 50%] 

BTW spring packs are in the $200 range every time I have seen them especially if they have the hangers. 

 

DP  mine is too far a drive and really expensive to ship as well as it's a 4.10 gear ...

Either that was not a real offer or it already sold. 

I tried to contact them yesterday morning but got no response. 

 

I tried looking through the Spokane Craig’s list and couldn’t find that ad any more. 

 

I did find a shop in Portland, that rebuilds rear ends, who has a Dana 80, with the 3:54, limited Slipp gears. He wants $1650 + my complete Dana 70 as a core.

And

There is a wrecking yard in Shelton that has one too.  

They want $1225 for it.

Ya

that is what I am thinking too

 

my son thinks I should just get a 14 bolt from a dually Chevy since I’m not worried about the low ground clearance.

I was surprised at the cost of these wheel adapters too.

do u guys think these would work OK?

or will these move the load too far out (about 4 inches), away from the existing wheel studs and bearings.

IMHO don’t use a “kit” .. use engineered factory parts .. just one man’s opinon

I looked into those wheel adapters a little deeper and decided not to go that route.

 

Cost was a big factor

and after they are installed, you can NOT use Dodge wheels on them. You have to use the Hub piloted, like the pre-metric, Ford 1984-1998 style wheels.

Can you use an AAR from a 3rd gen dually?

I am not familiar with an AAR.

 

I would think I could use it. Assuming the width is the same.

What else could be different about the newer rear ends compared to the older, Dana 80?  The newer, 6.7 liter, engines boast more torque than the older 12 valves, so the AAR should be strong enough.

Newer would have disc brakes. that would be a plus.

Would it use the same wheels? or did Dodge switch away from the 8 lugs on 6.5 in pattern and go to something in a metric size? I don't have any dually wheels yet anyway.

 

I will do some research to learn about the AAR and any differences between them and the Dana 80.

Bob's right, AAM.   I must have had a Cuda on the brain!

That's what as in my 04 3500 and I ran it up to 26k all the time with no issues.
