is it possible to run duals, and take the extra wheels off at times of need. I'm thinking for plowing in particular, when you would want the smaller turning radius and narrower track. How hard is it to convert a 3/4 ton to a dually, i'm looking at 89-92 dodges with diesels, i think they had dana 70`s, same as in the 1tons, how hard is the conversion.

Taking off the outside duals if needed is possible, and I have seen it done - though it does look a little "goofy"! It's something you would want to do at the start of the plowing season and just leave 'em off IMO though.

I don't know my Dodges, so I can't say about them, I DO know that on the 73 - 87 Chev/GMC trucks it isn't possible to put duals on a single wheel rear axle because of the brake drums - dually drums on those trucks were more of a "bell" shape to clear the inside (reversed) rim, plus they had the wide shoes to help stop the extra weight those duals could carry.
