My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Welcome to TRS! Sounds like a fun project.

If you want an actual dually that can handle the weight then F250 superduty dually rear axles are usually not hard to find
Then you will need to shorten it and add the spring perches and shock mounts, and pinion/yoke adapter
But pretty sure you can't get higher load or tow rating unless you pay for full inspection and get a new title as a custom vehicle

1999 and up use 8x170mm lug pattern, so you would need adapters for the front wheels so they match


I think they used to sell "dually spacers", or you could have them made, these were ONLY for the look of duallies, and can not handle extra weight
But way cheaper way to go

Not being negative just curious what the goals besides having a dually appearance are? Do you actually plan to tow? If not the dually soacers are much easier to do

When you say something will only take a couple of hours it usually takes longer.
