    Stay away from the dually front 60 unless you get the matching width rear to go with. Youre going to have to run hummer rims or something with a similar negative offset just to keep everything kind of under the truck. If you swap the knuckles out for some single wheel ones youre going to be spending more than you saved on buying the dually front. If youre willing to spend a grand on just a front axle that is going to need a bunch of work,look around and save up a bit more money and buy a matched set off of a single weel or you could buy a complete 1 ton truck to rape for parts. If you get one with a big block and some decent stuff on it you could recoup a bit of the investment parting it out.
