    I have seen a few. Looks like you just take a dually rear axle and put it under the burb, then put on a set of dually flairs. Doesn't look like anything to overly complicated about the swap. Even looks kinda cool.

    There was a dually burbin in the movie Twister if I remember right.

    I don't have any pics, but my uncle used to have one when I was a kid, it was cool. He used it to tow the race car. It was a mid 80s, pretty simple, and looked factory. :)

    I've seen several!

    I have seen some at drag races in the pits at Epping NH before,and at a swap meet in stafford springs CT I saw a 1972 suburban with TANDEM rear axles!! (one was just a dummy trailer axle),but it was cool,the guy added another rear wheel openning and stretched the burb 4 feet!..I wished I had my camera with me,but I didnt...I've also seen a few chevy vans with dualie axles,and one tandem one at a lobster resteraunt near me from nevada,the guy was on vacation!...I guess GM missed the boat by not building them factory,seems to be a fairly popular swap in this area too...:crazy:
