Is this possible? I thought they went to IFS in 88.

    The 88-91 crew cab trucks were still the old body style and still had solid front axles.

    Yea, the way I understand it - the 88-91 3/4TON & 1TONs kept the straight axle.

    <font color="green"> Not 3/4 tons, just 1 tons stayed SFA. 3/4 tons were IFS just like the 1/2 tons. </font color>

    1 tons went to IFS in 88 as well, except for the crew cabs.

    What's the difference between a dually and non-dually front end? Is it reasonable cost-wise to convert one over?
