I'll help, it's disgusting. Duallies look nausiating and if the added traction wasnt neccesarry for hauling like a horse trailer or something I'd call them flat out ghey.

I am working on it right now. It's not all that difficult, since I have the tools to make it easy. The challenge is doing some here and there and driving it from one place to another while doing it. Started in NY at the lake house and now to go to NJ and do the finishing touches. Lowes has a few good materials and random hardware that helps out a lot!

I would love to see it. If ya can find it... Still looking for it.
I am noticing a couple zones to either strengthen/ add weight or go for the look and keep it light as possible. I am leading towards strength and longevity. The steps are key to the whole side panels. It's interesting putting a jersey built bed on a Twin cities truck bein driven in NJ and NY.

I think that 2nd dually looks fricken amazing!!! Bolt up that dually kit to a REAL crew cab Ranger, put some BFG Mud Terrains on there, figure out a way to install King Ranch seats, and shove a 7.3L between the fenders... hell yea!
And also... beef up the drivetrain so its not snappin axles everytime you decide to push on the gas.

Ahh... thats what dreams are made of.

Right ^^^

I almost said the same thing then I realized he was referring to an earlier picture of a Gen 1. Managed to censor myself before I posted and looked like a tard. Thanks Downsey!

With the F 50, is it a whole side swap or are the bubbles cut off a splash and attached to a styleside bed?

Not sure where the build thread was but they glassed the step side "bubbles" onto the regular bed.
