    OK i've done some searching but haven't found anything concrete. Anyone know? What's the narrowest? How does one do DRW and keep both tires under a straight bed? THANX

    The BV Bible is good.

    For 73-87 trucks, though, it's a bit simpler.

    Wide DRW is almost invariably a D70.

    Narrow DRW is the C&C 14BFF.

    SRW is the regular 14BFF.

    The two 14BFF's differ only by the brake/hub combo, and the location of the flange that the brake backing plate mounts to. The axle shafts are the same length and the axle itself is the same width; the DRW hubs shift the WMS in 2".

    You can do DRW on a regular 14BFF by changing hubs *and* switching to weld-on discs, or moving the backing flange in.

    First off - you need to tub the inner fenders. (or lift so tires end up below box floor :crazy:)

    You can put DRW wheels on the SRW axle... tires stick out a little. Can be taken care of with small flares. Brakes need to be customized for wheel clearance, or run the 11" drum setup.

    C&C axle will put the tires right under the truck. Requires the 1-ton spring spacing though.... because there's only ~44" between the backing plates. :crazy:

    U2S is absolutely right on all counts, and I have committed a grave sin by not pic-whoring myself :haha:

    This is my tow rig, with a 1-ton 14BFF, using SRW hubs but dually brakes (which are currently being tossed for disc.)

    You do end up with < 48" between the wheel wells, so no plywood sheets flat in the bed; and with the SRW hubs, the tires stick out a bit -- these are 235/85-16's, stock size (no CybrFire stuff here! :D )

    You can see I tubbed the wheel wells in 3.5", I think, each side, and I have room to push the wheels/tires in with DRW hubs if I choose to in the future.

    Same shafts, same housing - except for the location of the backing plate flanges.
