F250 Dually conversion.

F250 Dually conversion.

well.after thinking it over.iv decided to just run the rear dually adapters,rather than running out of state and spending much more $.
since i have them,and an extra rear now anyway.the price was right to try it out (yeah.you convinced me Star lol.)

i figure i can always swap out to a true dually pickup rear latter on if this doesn't work out.
so i grabbed 5 rims today.that's all they had.so i'll be on the lookout for one more and some 4x4 front dually hub/rotor combo or the front adapters.

while i was at the salvage yard,i noticed the rear of this 2wd dually had a nice 3" wide 4 leaf overload pack.
so i bought both of these too.
now i can burn out the center bolt,and add my super duty overload to the top and have my 5 aux combo.

now,since the super duty conversion is said not only to be much stronger,but gives a smoother ride as well(due to being longer.)im really contemplating how many mains i want to remove from this 10 main pack i have.
can someone give an estimate of the payload that 5 mains w/ 5 aux springs should handle?

i'v also got a high flow muffler on order,and will be taking the rig in to have the custom Y done up soon as well.
i'll be taking in my favorite pic to show them what i want:

i'm slowly gathering more pieces to the puzzle for a great chipper truck setup.

edit.
oh yeah,and iv got a replacement front plastic tank coming in to a local salvage yard this Thursday.so i'll be able to run around with more than 4 gallons at a time now LOL.
i'll tilt my bed up tomorrow,and fix the pickup in the rear tank too.
still on the lookout for some underbody tool boxes.looks like i may be forced to buy new.dang.can't find anything used around.

hey guys.check out the muffler on a big block grate engine.
i went with the Ultra-Flo Welded.(basically a high quality glass pack with a very,very DEEP sound. )
you can hear 'em all:
Dynomax Performance Exhaust | Sounds of Dynomax

here's the specs on it.claims to support up to 2k ponies.so should eliminate the drone,while flowing free,so the IDI don't know she's even there really.
