    <font color=blue>From what I've seen, the dually ones are the same as the regular ones but with wheel adapters on them. I'm pretty sure they unbolt from the hub. Dynatrac will sell you the parts to convert it, but everything they make is $$$$$$$$$$$$$. It is possible to swap on non-dually hubs and rotors if you can find them.</font color=blue>

    I've had many questions about the dually 60 and converting it to single wheel so I called Dynatrac and Boyce to get the scoop. You need to replace the entire hub assembly. This is the large heavy part that the hubs, rotor go on to and the bearings go inside the inner part. The rotors are the same but the dealer wants to sell you both hub and rotor (hub/rotor assembly) for $500 each. Dynatrac will sell the assembly for $279 each and Boyce will do an exchange for for the dually hubs for $200 each. I think Boyce is more than dynatrac if you don't have any hub assem. to trade. Brakes and locking hubs (Warn) are the same for either. I'm not sure what the width is though.

    That is why dually 60 front ends are cheaper than non-duallys. I sold a dually 60 a few years ago and "only" got $700.
