Where can I get dual wheels?

Was wondering if anyone knows a supplier for Ranger dual wheels or adapters for same. Want to build a dual wheel flatbed from an 80's truck. Or does anyone have some they are not using? Thanks VIC

Well, I can say that what you will have to do is swap out axles with an older truck - then adapt the driveshaft to the axle, We dont have actual adapters to easily swap out to a duallie's setup!

I seem to remember Jc Whitney having adapters though, years ago. Add extra wheels, long bolts and some sort of spacer. I have seen small trucks with duals, You think they changed axles? Or was there ever a manufactures option?

He used his stock styleside bed and cut the bedsides off a flareside and welded them on and blended and painted. his build thread on whatever forum (can't remember) was AWESOME. it's his girlfriends F-350 lol.
