There wouldn't be much benefit in replacing the entire axle. They are both 11.5AAM rearends with 3.73 gears. It really wouldn't take much to do. Just trying to find a bed. You're 2500HD is an 8' bed right?

Hi the dully wheels are a real trip in the winter snow. The truck has way to much tire in the back for its weight. In snow the rear end floats on top of the snow and dose not sink in to get a good bit. This makes the truck very hard to drive in the snow or if there is a lot of water on the road it will hydroplane. With the tt on the back it is very stable and you don't get blown around much.

hope this helps Tim

So what is your plan for a bed? You won't be able to modify a factory dually bed for your WB. I'm thinking your only option would be a flat bed.

The advertisement was for Arrowcraft. Their website shows a fender conversion for a short bed
