'04 Chevy 2500 HD....what does it take to


Recommended Posts

install dual rear wheels? No doubt for wheels and tires. But with the big rear end (4:10's) and 8 bolt and disc brakes. Will I have to change the stock studs to a longer stud to be able to bolt dual wheels?

 

 

 

 

I may be wrong, but I think the rear end in 3500's is different than in the 2500. Going to have to buy a new box...and if your truck is short box, those are pretty rare. By the time you end up making all the changes, you would probably be better off just selling your 2500 and getting a 3500.

 

Why dualies? Doing some serious towing?

If its a new style short box, you're SOL as far as the bed goes. The General stopped making shortbox duallys back in 2000. Only way you could do it would be to use an 90-00 shortbed, but then the bodylines wont match. Unless of course you know a good fabricator. :thumbs:

Yes, do some serious towing, that's why the duallies. The rear end is the same in a 2500 HD as in a 3500.....

The 2500 HD is a 6.5 ft bed....they make them, I was just checking around to find out what is all out there

That looks like a OBS dually fender bolted onto the side of a NBS short bed. Which I doubt tlooks all that great. Notice they have the pic angled so the bed (which should be highlighted) is in the back and hard to see.

The factory NBS duallies have 1-piece urethane bed sides, and none of them were short bed.
