    Looking to trade with a fellow member for a crew cab 4x frame but it is SRW (single rear wheel) I have a Dually 2x that I want to convert. My question is this: will my Dually axle work on the Single frame or is the Dual frame narrower?Thanks,

    The frame itself has nothing to do with the width of the trucks. Its the rear spring hangers that are different between the C/K20's and 30's. 30's hangers are narrower, hence the reason the perches are closer together. Your rearend will fit as a direct swap in since both frames are 1 tons. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
